Ferrari owners in India can breathe a sigh of relief as the supercar manufacturer has confirmed that its Indian operations are not affected by the global recall of the 458 Italia and California supercars.
The problem, which affected 206 cars of the total 13,000 built, is caused by an incorrect finish to the crankshafts manufactured for the V8 engine. The problem causes unwanted vibrations which can damage the engine if not changed. As a precaution, Ferrari has chosen to recall the affected vehicles and replace the crankshaft completely.
“We are writing to all clients affected now, asking them to return the car to a dealer for the work to be done,” said a Ferrari spokesman.
