Working with trusted suppliers, the team at the heritage home of the world-renowned British car maker has developed entirely new engine blocks, cylinder heads, gearboxes and other major components – all built to original manufacturer specifications – which are now being made available to owners of DB4, DB5, DB6 and certain V8 models from the 1960s and 1970s.
The move to invest in the creation of new tooling to manufacture key components for some of the most famous members of the brand’s historic back catalogue means that owners of these sports cars can once again return their vehicles to fully original specifications.
The drive to remanufacture items such as gearboxes came about as part of the Aston Martin continuation programme that led to the need for new parts while also generating a full understanding of which parts were immediately available and which had not been manufactured for years.
“Working with the exceptional engineers, key parts suppliers were tasked with developing these new components," said Aston Martin Works president Paul Spires.
“The heritage department at gearbox supplier ZF, for instance, was invaluable in helping to recreate original specification gearboxes – making these parts available for the first time since the early 1970s.”
