(WTXL/RNN) - Two makers of 10 exclusive sports cars driven on U.S. roads are warning owners about defective airbags and wheels that can fall off.

Eight of Lamborghini's Aventador run the risk of losing wheels. 

The Lamborghini's "loose centering bolts may cause wheel detachment," the National Highway Transportation Administration said in a recall about the 2015 and 2016 models. "... A wheel detachment can increase the risk of a crash."

The cars cost up to $540,000. Lamborghini's worldwide recall is expected to begin Aug. 31, 2018.

The automaker will replace the bolts free of charge if the owners call a toll-free number (1-866-681-6276), use a certain reference number (L73XR0318) and then deliver the cars to a dealer. 

The other recall affects two $3 million French-made Bugatti Chiron. There are only 12 available in the United States, but two of them have defective airbags. 

Owners of the Bugatti Chiron need not make a phone call, according to thedrive.com. Bugatti will phone the owners. 

The automaker will send a team of engineers and technicians to determine if their car owners have one of the two cars.

The affected vehicles' doors will be flown to France to be repaired.

No one is known to have been injured by the issues with any of the cars.
