At the 86th International Geneva Motor Show 2016, Bugatti presented its latest creation unveiling the Bugatti Chiron, the most powerful, fastest, most luxurious and most exclusive production super sports car in the world. With a power output of 1,500 HP, unprecedented for production vehicles, an exceptionally high torque value of 1,600 Nm and a wide variety of technical innovations, the Chiron sets new standards in every respect. The Chiron is therefore very well positioned to become the next world speed record holder and reach a maximum speed significantly above the record currently held by Bugatti. Only 500 of these exceptional cars are to be produced.
Montegrappa is thrilled to present the Bugatti Chiron collection, a limited edition of just 250 fountain pens and 250 rollerball pens. The series, like the new Bugatti super sports car it represents, is named after racing legend Louis Chiron, a racing driver who won virtually all the major Grands Prix during the 1920's and 30's, including the 1931 Monaco Grand Prix in a Bugatti Type 51.
The Chiron fountain pen features a carbon fibre barrel, anodized aluminium cap and barrel ends decorated with dynamic quilting engraving, reminiscent of Bugatti upholstery, while the cap top is enriched with a red lacquer line, mimicking the stop-light of the Chiron. The screws are inspired by the original monocoque titanium mounting screws, while the surfaces - both matte and highly polished - correspond to Bugatti practice. Palladium details enhance the structure whilst the elegant signature of Ettore Bugatti 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 of opening it to expose the nib. Instead os screwing out the cap from the barrel, the user turns the outer end of the cap and the pen barrel is freed. The signature pocket clip is shaped to recall the car's centre console and also works as a tie-clip!
Fitted with an 18ct gold nib bearing the Bugatti oval logo, the Chiron fountain pen is offered in three writing grades of Fine, Medium and Broad widths and is filled using the piston-filler mechanism. Presented in an elegant carbon fibre appearance, highly polished lacquered box.
