Italian company of luxury writing instruments Montegrappa presents a new limited edition of Bugatti-inspired pens: The Bugatti Chiron Collection. Just like the Bugatti super sports car it represents, the series is named after racing legend Louis Chiron, who was a racing driver who won virtually all the major grands prix for the brand in the 1920s and 1930s, including the 1931 Monaco Grand Prix in a Bugatti Type 51.
Limited to 250 units of each model, Montegrappa Bugatti Chiron writing instruments were designed by Gabor Megyeri. A truly collector’s item, the pen is comprised of carbon fibre barrels, anodised aluminium cap and barrel ends, which are garnished with dynamic quilting engraving, a nod to Bugatti upholstery, while the cap top is enriched with red lacquer line. The design of the screws of the pen is inspired by the original monocoque titanium mounting screws, while the matte and shiny surfaces correspond to Bugatti practice. Palladium details also enhance the structure. Ettore Bugatti’s elegant signature surrounds the pocket clip mount. The barrel end terminates with the world-famous red Bugatti oval logo.
The pen functions in its own unique way, with a fresh method for opening it to expose the nib. Instead of screwing out the cap from the barrel, the user turns the outer end of the cap and the pen barrel is freed. The signature clip, shaped to recall the car’s console, also works as a tie-clip. The Chiron fountain pen is available in three writing grades of fine, medium and broad and is refined with an 18k Gold nib bearing the Bugatti oval badge. The collection features fountain pen priced at € 3,500 and rollerball pens only, which cost € 3,100.
