Luxury carmaker Rolls-Royce has issued a recall for nearly every car it has sold in Australia over the last decade for fears of possible brake failures and vehicles catching on fire.
The recall affects over 100 cars sold since 2003 with a combined value of around $100 million, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Around 74 of the company's flagship Phantom models sold between 2003 and 2009 and priced at up to $1.35 million, and a further 36 Rolls-Royce Ghosts sold between 2009 and 2011 and priced at $645,000, are affected.
Rolls-Royce said no accidents had been reported but the company was forced to issue a recall last night via the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission's Product Safety Recalls Australia website.
The recall notice said the Ghost models were being recalled because "if the turbo cooling pump cracks, the pump electronics may smoulder, possibly causing an engine compartment fire or a vehicle fire".
The Phantom is being recalled due to "the possibility of oil entering the brake booster, there may be a reduction in power braking assistance and an increased chance of an accident occurring".
Rolls-Royce owner BMW issued a similar recall for the BMW 7 Series in 2010, which the Sydney Morning Herald reports shares some componentry with Rolls-Royce models.
