National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), DOT.


Extension of comment period.


On March 12, 2003, NHTSA published notice (at 68 FR 11898) that it had received a petition to decide that nonconforming 1996 and 1997 Lamborghini Diablo passenger cars are eligible for importation into the United States. The notice solicited public comments on the petition and stated that the closing date for comments is April 11, 2003.

This is to notify the public that NHTSA is extending the comment period until May 30, 2003. This extension is based on a request from Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. (“Lamborghini”). In requesting the extension, Lamborghini noted that its available resources for responding to the petition are “seriously constrained.” In particular, Lamborghini stated that it has only two employees who would be able to conduct the necessary research to prepare the response and those employees will be on travel in the United States for three to four weeks beginning March 18, 2003 to prepare the company's emission certification on a vehicle to be introduced in the 2004 model year.


Comments on the import eligibility petition must be submitted on or before May 30, 2003.
