McLaren’s twin-turbo V6-powered plug-in hybrid supercar has been recalled, following the discovery of a defecting fuel pipe.


McLaren has recalled 18 examples of its 2022-2023 McLaren Artura and told owners to stop driving their supercars, citing a fault with the twin-turbo V6’s fuel system which could lead to an engine fire.

The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “Due to a manufacturing defect, the low pressure fuel pipe assembly may detach. If this occurs, fuel may leak in the presence of an external ignition source resulting in a vehicle fire.

“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders and/or damage property.”
