To 6HP or not to 6HP – Is That a Question?

ZF Friedrichshafen (meaning Zahnradfabrik Friedrichshafen) is a leading supplier of automobile transmissions. The company was founded in 1915 in Friedrichshafen, Germany, to produce gears for zeppelins and other airships but moved into the automobile market by 1918. The company helped produce the airship Hindenburg as well as truck parts for Hitler’s war effort. ZF is also known for designing and manufacturing the transmissions for most German Panzers of Word War II.
