"Goldfinger" – the film is perhaps one of the best known of all James Bond films, and by association, the iconic silver-colored Aston Martin DB5. The film name was chosen by the manufacturer for their reproduction program. ZF Tradition also ran their transmission reproduction program under the same name - a secret mission, of course.
The fact that the S5-325 manual five-speed sports transmission is made by ZF is perhaps not so well known. However, for decades, ZF and Aston Martin have been in successful cooperation - the British sports car manufacturer is one of the global technology company’s oldest customers.
ZF began reproduction activities for historic automobiles back in 2008, with some tricky projects already successfully carried out.
