SUMMARY:

Ferrari North America, Inc. (FNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 LaFerrari vehicles manufactured May 15, 2014, to March 4, 2015.

In the event of a tire puncture, the affected vehicles will display the incorrect warning message of “Low Tyre Pressure-Max speed 50 mph” instead of the correct message “Low Tyre Pressure-Do not proceed.”

The recall began on July17, 2015.

Owners may contact FNA customer service at 1-866-551-2828.
