Montegrappa presents the Bugatti Chiron limited edition pens collection
January 4, 2017: Being the As an official licensee to Bugatti, the superlative auto brand, Montegrappa has presented a new limited edition of Bugatti writing instruments: The Bugatti Chiron Collection. The series, like the new Bugatti super sports car it represents, is named after racing legend Louis Chiron, 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.
Montegrappa’s Chiron pens is timed to coincide with the unveiling of the successor to the astounding Veyron. The exclusive Chiron ultimate super sports car was recently presented as a world premiere in Geneva at the International Motor Show. Inspiring the eponymous writing instruments collection, the Chiron supercar will be reflected in the pen through the unusual combination of materials and design details, while the profile follows the line of the vehicle’s side panels.
The Chiron writing instruments feature carbon fibre barrels, and anodized aluminium cap and barrel ends. These are decorated with dynamic quilting engraving, reminiscent of Bugatti upholstery, while the cap top is enriched with red lacquer line. The screws are inspired by the original monocoque titanium mounting screws, while the surfaces – matte and shiny – 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 so called Bugatti “macaron”.
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.
Fitted with a 18k Gold nib bearing the Bugatti oval badge, the Chiron fountain pen is offered in three writing grades of fine, medium and broad. The collection will feature fountain and rollerball pens only. The Bugatti Chiron writing instruments are limited to 250 of each model.
