Ferrari recall over faulty boot latch

More than 3,000 Ferraris are subject to a recall because a fault with a latch means anyone trapped in the boot won't be able to get out.

A recall notice in the USA states that the Italian car maker's F458 Italia and F458 Spider models suffer from a fault that means the "secondary latch" in the boot, located at the front of the £200,000 cars, won't release when the vehicle has stopped.

In the US cars must have a working latch in the boot in case a person gets trapped.

Ferrari said the fault meant that "in the event an individual is trapped in the trunk and the latch system does not release the trunk lid, it increases the risk of personal injury or possibly death".
