Owning a classic car isn’t just something for the owner to enjoy. It also comes with the privilege and responsibility of preserving the heritage, legacy, and history that the car represents, whether it be in racing, engineering, design or innovation history in the automotive world. A manufacturer with some of the greatest examples of historic classic cars is Aston Martin, with stunning grand touring models and cars that have remained pop culture icons through the years.
Through Aston Martin Works, a variety of important parts like gearboxes and engine blocks are now available for these historic models, like the DB4, DB5, DB6 and certain V8 Aston Martins. Painstaking effort went into recreating these parts, many of which haven’t been available since the 1970s, and especially in the case of parts like gearboxes, the help of supplier ZF was essential. However, the result is a restoration process for some of the world’s most important and beautiful classic cars that’s easier than ever, which for any automotive enthusiast is a reason to celebrate.
