McLaren Automotive Limited has recalled 2017-20 McLaren 720S Coupe and 720S Spider, Senna, 570GT, and GT models to curtail a fire risk.

According to the carmaker, the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) foam pad sitting beneath the fuel tank can trap moisture, which can cause corrosion to the surface of the fuel tank over time.

If the fuel tank’s surface is corroded, it may allow fuel vapour or liquid to leak from the fuel tank. This could increase the risk of a fire, posing a risk of injury to vehicle occupants, bystanders, or damage to property.

  • A total of 186 vehicles are included in this recall
  • A VIN list of the affected vehicles is attached here
  • The original recall notice is attached here

Owners will be contacted to arrange an appointment with their McLaren dealer for the NVH foam pad to be removed and fuel tank inspected free-of-charge.
