Even Pagani's inimitable Huayra is subject to recalls

Loose airbags are sending 32 US examples of Pagani's hypercar back to the dealer.

Has anyone even seen a Pagani dealership before?

No car is safe from the wiry grasp of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. When NHTSA says you need to recall your car, it happens. It doesn't matter if it's a $12,000 Nissan Versa Note or a million-dollar hypercar like the Pagani Huayra.

Pagani recalled 32 examples of the 2014-2016 Huayra in the US (there are 32 Huayras in the US?) for an issue related to its airbags. The front driver airbag might not be secured to the steering wheel properly. In the event of a collision, an improperly secured airbag might not deploy correctly, which can lead to a greater chance of injury.

Thankfully, the fix is super simple. At the dealership, Pagani will replace the fasteners used to hold the airbag in the steering wheel. Once that's done, owners can go back to mothballing the cars as they wait for the value to rise to insane levels before selling it at a sweet profit. Let's be honest, that's probably the fate of most Huayras in the US.

This recall of high-end performance vehicles isn't necessarily a freak occurrence. Ferrari's caught up in the massive Takata airbag recall, which has covered nearly every corner of the industry. Porsche recently recalled all its 918 Spyder hypercars over an issue caused by just two screws.
