The NHTSA has said in its safety recall report that the problem stems from the nuts that have been used to tighten the high-pressure fuel pipe. These nuts could become loose over time, resulting in a fuel leak. In a worst-case scenario, this fuel leak could lead to a fire. To fix this problem, the high-pressure fuel pipes will be replaced by the dealerships free of charge. "If the nut becomes loose, the seal between the end flare of the fuel pipe and the sealing cone of the pump outlet may be disrupted, leading to the release of fuel. The end flare of the fuel pipe is situated close to engine components which have a high operating temperature. If fuel is released in proximity to these components, it could result in thermal activity," reads the report released by NHTSA.

Interestingly, this revelation comes just a few weeks after McLaren CEO Michael Leiters admitted that the auto company was rushing non-mature products to the market. "We saw that the Artura wasn't mature, so we stopped deliveries. We already had a significant delay in our production line at the time, and we reduced production to zero cars a day to fix our quality problems," he said.
