President of Aston Martin, Paul Spires, expressed his appreciation for collaborating with engineers at Aston Martin's headquarters. ZF, a notable partner with Aston Martin since the 1970s, has helped rebuild these original transmissions. Paul Spires further stated, “Working with the exceptional engineers both here and at Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters, key parts suppliers were tasked with developing these new components. 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.”
