The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued a recall in late February for precisely one 2020 Bentley Flying Spur over a potentially leaky fuel tank. Yes, you read that correctly. Just one, singular car.

The recall, posted on February 23, claims the affected vehicle, built on August 20, 2020, may have a fuel tank that wasn't welded properly at the factory, which could result in a fuel leak and potentially a fire. And fire, as you probably already know, is bad.

According to NHTSA, Bentley Motors plans to notify the unlucky owner of the recall on March 12. A dealer will replace the tank free of charge. Considering the Flying Spur is a $216,700 super-luxury sport sedan with a 207-mph top speed, we're confident the owner has at least one other car available to chauffeur them around while this one's in the shop. If not, we hope Bentley will at least offer a loaner car.

If you suspect you might be the owner of the 2020 Bentley Flying Spur in question, you can contact Bentley's customer service line at 1-800-777-6923 for more info. Bentley's reference number for this recall is RE21/07 (RB88). You can also reach out to the NHTSA directly at 1-888-327-4236 to learn more.
