Montegrappa Bugatti Chiron Collection

     

Montegrappa’s all-new design for the Chiron pens is timed to coincide with the unveiling of the successor to the astounding Veyron. The exclusive Chiron “ultimate super sports car was just 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.

Designed by Gabor Megyeri, 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”.

Not only is the Chiron collection an aesthetic tour de force: it is a technical triumph, too. 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. Collectors, please take note: the Bugatti Chiron writing instruments are limited to 250 examples of each model.
