Luxury car maker Aston Martin has recalled over 17,000 of its vehicles: all the left-hand drive cars it has built since November 2007 and all the right-hand drive cars it has built since May 2012. That&rsquo;s 1,553 Astons in the UK alone.</p> <p>Why? Well, the Warwickshire-based company has discovered that a Chinese sub-supplier has allegedly been using counterfeit plastic material in part of the accelerator pedal &ndash; and this has led to fears over safety. Hence the drastic measures. Aston Martin says there have not been any accidents as a result of the knock-off part to date.</p> <p><strong>[Source: <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-26058905" target="_blank">BBC News</a>]</strong></p> <p><em>Image credit: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/25489182@N04/5898018994/in/photolist-9ZbTyE-eVXGmH-bqtGQe-9Mwgdr-bgU3iF-8prGXV-eXiGRM-dY99M6-aw4Vpu-9DjfdQ-7Zy5PG-bQ22dB-aBSTUj-9Sa9mH-9dQkvY-ak762t-dR8qai-9SNumV-9qrePP-btCByL-bd6JFk-aQnH6Z-bjvaVh-8puT1W-9SpFj4-e2pSvX-9j7Tdw-82Afs1-eiB1PU-9XL4TA-83cQcG-e85PbF-9Tao6R-9cjmYn-8CD84e-eayEa1-aBQe46-9U3b15-8K6sWN-bzPWGH-9buozS-839FrD-e8NFd9-7ZuXsM-efVoFY-dWosJK-83cQo1-dnHbXf-8vSRST" target="_blank">Philipp Lücke</a></em></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Aston Martin recalls 17,000 cars over knock-off part" alt="Aston Martin recalls 17,000 cars over knock-off part" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/aston.jpg?1391735420" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Aston Martin BlackBerry Moto G Wearable tech Wed, 05 Feb 2014 20:40:50 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1432077 at http://www.stuff.tv Aston Martin 2013 DB9 replaces Virage http://www.stuff.tv/2013-db9/aston-martin-2013-db9-replaces-virage/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The latest car to be unveiled by Aston Martin packs a 48 valve V12 engine – and no mercy for the Virage </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/aston-martin-db9-2013_0.jpg?1364399539" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="375" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/aston-martin-db9-2013-inside_0.jpg?1364399539" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="500" height="50" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/new-twitter-banner_4042.jpg?1364399539" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>If you've got a spare tux lying around, along with about £132,000 in cash, you can pretend your James Bond in the new 2013 Aston Martin DB9.
