Apparently, should someone find themselves trapped in the car's nose, the interior release handle only lets loose one of frunk's latches. That means that while anyone held captive by the V8-powered supercar won't be in danger of suffocating and will still be able to call for help, the cars are still ultimately in violation of federal safety mandates.
According to Uncle Sam, should someone become trapped in a trunk, like a child, they must be able to open the trunk from the inside and escape. That can't happen in the 458.
It's not clear which model years are covered, although according to CNN Money, only the 458 Italia and Spider are covered by the recall. If you're a lucky 458 Speciale owner, you're clean and clear... we think.
Owners will be notified by Ferrari and will need to return their car to the local dealer for modifications.
