It's for one single car

(Newser) – The only single-vehicle recalls you'll usually see are for trucks, fire engines, and school buses. So the owner of a Rolls-Royce made in England can feel pretty special that his or her sedan is the subject of a rare single-car recall that affects that car alone, the Financial Times reports. The affected 2015 luxury sedan, which Syracuse.com notes typically costs at least $300,000, has front-seat air bags that may not meet side-impact requirements (which, as the Telegraph notes, isn't ideal for a car that can reach a top speed of 155mph).

It's apparently the result of "the incorrect labeling on one of the airbags," a rep tells the Times. No worries for the owner of the car, which was manufactured on January 23, 2014—the recall notes a Rolls-Royce dealer can hook the vehicle up with new air bags free of charge. (Maybe the owner can soup up the car with some of these insane options while it's in the shop.)
