Rolls-Royce issues recall for one car

The Financial Times reports Wednesday on yet another car recall, this time one related to a problem with airbags.

But before you worry that you’re in danger, know that this recall affects only one vehicle — not one type of vehicle, just one car.

It’s a Rolls-Royce Ghost II, and it hasn’t actually been delivered to its North American owner yet. 

During a safety check before Rolls-Royce was going to send the car to the customer, engineers noticed that one of the airbags had incorrect labeling so they issued a recall notice.

Because that’s the kind of individual attention you expect when you pay close to $300,000 for a car.

The Rolls-Royce recall isn’t actually the only time a single car has been recalled for a problem. The Financial Times says a 2002 Porsche 911 Carrera got singled out, and so did a 2013 Koenigsegg Agera supercar which had a problem with a tire pressure warning light.
