Lotus is recalling 80 of its 2011 supercharged Evora sport cars because an oil hose could rupture, increasing the risk of a fire.

Units falling under the recall were manufactured between February and September, 2011 and are equipped with a three-piece oil feed pipe with a flexible hose section. Lotus hasn’t provided a schedule for the repairs yet, but NHTSA says the automaker will carry out repairs through its dealer network free of charge.

Owners can contact Lotus at (800) 245-6887 or the NHTSA safety hotline at (888) 327-4236.
