The US Senate has released a report that all of Ferrari’s current model line-up in the United States are fitted with potentially faulty Takata airbags. Prior to this, the Italian marque faced an airbag recall for its cars in Australia.

The US models affected include the California T, GTC4 Lusso, 488 GTB, 488 Spider, F12 Berlinetta, and F12 TdF. The just-discontinued FF four-seater which was succeeded by the GTC4 Lusso is also included in this recall.

Ferrari has been subject to a wide-ranging recall before, also for airbags; 2,600 units were recalled globally for improper assembly of the driver’s side airbag. In a brief departure from airbag issues, the LaFerrari hypercar was also recalled, albeit for seat and TPMS matters. Locally, 50 Malaysian Ferraris have been recalled, which include the 458 Italia, California and FF.

Meanwhile, Mercedes-Benz vehicles involved in this episode include the E-Class coupe and convertible, and the Sprinter van. The Senate report also stated that both Ferrari and Daimler have plans to inform dealers and owners of impending recall activity. According to Automotive News, out of the 17 auto manufacturers Senator Nelson has contacted, seven have admitted to selling new vehicles equipped with defective airbags from Takata.
