(Reuters) — Ferrari North America Inc. is recalling some 2016 California T vehicles due to the risk of a fuel leak in the engine compartment, according to a U.S. notice on Friday.

The recall, which began on Dec. 14, affects up to 185 vehicles manufactured between Sept. 8 and Nov. 11, 2015.

The higher risk of a leak, which increases the chances of fire, was the result of a manufacturing defect in a part provided by a supplier, according to a filing with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration.

The move comes after Ferrari, which is in the process of spinning off from parent Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, recalled upwards of 800 cars in the United States to fix a problem with its Takata airbags over the summer.

Ferrari issued a stop sale notice to dealers of the 2016 model California T, which has a list price of just over $167,000 according to The Car Guide, on Nov. 23, filings show. Dealers will replace the line free of charge, the notice read.
