The Chiron is powered by a 1,500 hp 16-cylinder engine and some models are capable of speeds in excess of 300 mph. Prices for various models range from around $3 million to $19 million and only 500 will be built. The first was delivered to a customer in March 2017 and the entire run is sold out and should be completed this year.

The affected vehicle was built on Nov. 16, 2017, with one of the two screws fastening a front frame support tightened to 50% of the recommended torque, which could pose a safety risk in a crash. An investigation of all Chirons prior to March 3, 2022, found that no others have the issue.


This isn't the first unique recall for one of Volkswagen Group's affiliated exotic brands. Last year, Lamborghini discovered that one of its $500,000+ Aventador SVJ Roadsters had a loose screw on an oil line that could've posed a fire risk had fluid leaked from the system.
