Aston Martin Works, the historic home of Aston Martin, is all set to supply new factory engine parts and other significant components to the owners of classic Aston Martin models. Those classic models include the Aston Martin DB4, the DB5, the DB6, and select V8-powered vehicles of the 1960s and 70s. Through this move, the luxury sports car manufacturer strives to allay the fears and worries of the car owners around the authenticity of the vehicles. Shortly, the company will offer original engine blocks, cylinder heads, gearboxes, and other major parts that are built in accordance with the specifications of the original vehicles. These essential OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts will be supplied with complete certification and documentation to the owners, thereby ensuring the authenticity of the vehicles.

In fact, Aston Martin is already providing a wide range of classic car parts that include fuel pumps, carburettors, body parts, suspension parts, and brake parts. This means that the cars can be driven without having them lost their resale value. ZF, an important partner of Aston Martin since the 70s, has been instrumental in recreating and supplying crucial parts such as the transmission.
Apart from Aston Martin, there are other leading automotive manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Porsche, and Mazda that offer a comprehensive range of classic car components to the car owners.
Aston Martin DB4, DB5, DB6
The Aston Martin DB range spans from the DB1 to the DB11 Volante. With 'DB' in its moniker, the first-ever Aston Martin launched under David Brown's supervision was the DB1. Coming to the other classic models, the Aston Martin DB4 became the company's first production car that could accelerate from a standstill to 160km/h and then back to stationary in under 30 seconds; it had a claimed top speed of 160km/h in 21 seconds. Then came the DB5 in 1963 that drew its power from a 4-litre engine that is mated to a full synchromesh ZF five-speed gearbox, followed by the largest-selling DB6 that remained in production until 1970.
