It hasn’t been a memorable year for Ferrari. They had a recall on their California T Model, and have now ordered a stop sale on the 488 GTB model due to a potential fire risk.
The fire risk comes from a flaw in a fuel system component that could set fire inside the engine compartment. Its suspected that the fuel line isn’t installed correctly into the fuel pump, and has an ‘improper coating treatment’, which can lead to fuel vapor leaks. The line isn’t manufactured by Ferrari, supplied instead by Dytech.
There’s a bit of good news for Ferrari: the 116 488 GTB’s sold in the U.S. have not been sold, so the company hasn’t had to recall cars in the States.
