200 Ford GT supercars recalled because of a fire risk

Ford is recalling approximately 200 of its GT supercars because of a possible fire risk. The fire hazard stems from the active rear wing’s hydraulic lift system. Fluid can leak from the system’s valve block assembly located underneath the rear wing, then fall onto the hot exhaust, where it can ignite. 

Earlier this year, a Ford GT owner in Germany lost his car to a fire in the engine bay. At the time, we weren’t exactly sure what caused the fire, but Ford says the leaking hydraulic system was responsible. Other than that fire, Ford isn’t aware of any other instances related to this issue.
