- "In the past, a plaque on the doorsill of an Aston Martin that advertised 'Handbuilt in England' would have been a warning. But now that Aston has moved from its traditional home in Newport Pagnell to its high-tech factory at Gaydon in the English Midlands, persistent quality problems have been left behind. The renowned sports-car maker has made a remarkable transition from hopeless cottage industry to high-tech, top-class niche manufacturer." -- Automobile Magazine
