It's pretty much unanimous to say that the Lamborghini Murcielago is one scorching hot car.

It's also not too far from the literal truth.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a failing weld holding the fuel pump inside the gas tank is at high risk of detaching, which in turn may cause a leak. This of course, leads to one thing and one thing only, FIYAH! That's one exciting ride.

Unfortunately, highway safety administrators don't think it too exciting and issued a recall for the 428 Murcielago and Murcielago Roadster from the 2007-2008 model years. Lamborghini dealers also offered to replace the fuel tank for free beginning May 28, 2010.

At least it didn't run on ranch dressing, like THIS car.

So picture this. You're driving down the street in your brand new, $220,000 Ferrari 458 Italia, and all of a sudden...it bursts into flames.

A new Transformers morphing sequence?

Not if the flame continues to burn the car into a pile of rubble. Which is precisely what happens in what the media is calling the "Ferrari Curse."

After six of these suspicious fire instances in a year, Ferrari has discovered that the glue used to protect the wheel arch from the exhaust pipe melts under extreme heat conditions.

Something tells me extreme heat conditions and Ferraris go hand-in-hand, so...

After delivering more than 13,000 Italias worldwide, the official Ferrari recall affects every single one.

Oh snap, looks like BMW manufacturers (yes, BMW owns Rolls-Royce) just pulled a Toyoka!

In early October, BMW issued a voluntary recall of about 5,800 Rolls-Royce cars built from 2002 to 2010. Trouble began when drivers started to complain of needing to push harder on the brake pedal in order to stop moving on cars with high mileage. After inspection, BMW discovered that there was indeed a faulty power-brake system.

The company broke down the issue in a statement that says "a leak may develop in the power braking system, potentially causing a vacuum loss and consequent reduction of power braking assistance." The recall also involves V8 and V12-powered BMW 5 Series, 6 Series and 7 Series.

Porsche Panamera is listed (or ranked) 4 on the list The Top 7 Coolest Cars Recalled in 2010

This one's a doozy. Porsche has issued a recall for all 11,324 Panamera vehicles sold worldwide because of an issue with the safety belt.

But...it has the word "safety" in it.

In a report issued to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the seatbelt mounts of the 2010 Porsche Panamera gets detached when the front seats are adjusts in an "extreme position." Extreme is interpreted to mean being pulled all the way forward to the dash.

Now, nobody's driving around like that but in the event of an accident, there is an (unlikely) chance. In any case, Porsche is recalling 3,176 of its 2010 Panameras and dealers are offering to install an additional locking element on the seatbelt anchoring system for both the driver and passenger seat.
