Montegrappa and Lamborghini Unveil Limited-Edition Luxury Pen Collection
A bespoke collection of luxury fountain pens to mark the automaker's 60th Anniversary
Combining the luxurious world of supercar sports with luxury writing instruments, Montegrappa in collaboration with Lamborghini launches the Automobili Lamborghini 60°, an all-Italian, limited-edition writing, available at selected boutiques worldwide from November 2023.
Sixty years of dream designs provide the inspiration for an all-Italian writing collection that revels in the legacy of the legendary Automobili Lamborghini. Created by Montegrappa in collaboration with the fabled carmaker, Automobili Lamborghini 60° fuses advanced materials, mechanical prowess, and futuristic design to pay tribute to an Italian icon as it celebrates its 60th anniversary throughout 2023.
Automobili Lamborghini 60° charges the senses with a fountain pen and rollerball configurations that channel the mechanical and aesthetic audacity of Lamborghini into a high-performance, handheld tool. Offered in six factory colours, editions of sixty fountain pens and rollerballs tap the emotion and spirit of the luxury marque founded by Ferruccio Lamborghini in 1963.
Pure surfaces, precise contours and determined proportions provide the sensorial pillars of a supercharged silhouette that tests the boundaries of writing instrument design and engineering. Design codes from the fabled House of Sant’Agata Bolognese feature throughout an ultra-light, hexagonal profile made from numerically milled aerospace aluminium and clad in forged carbon fibre.
The collection boasts next-level mechanical performance baked into the ethos of Automobili Lamborghini 60°. On fountain pens, Montegrappa’s rare, elite-grade Power-Push mechanism offers writers the speed of one-touch filling. Meanwhile, both modes are equipped with a one-step release system developed for rapid ink chamber access. Inspired by Lamborghini’s iconic start button guard, a red alloy flip switch located on the pen’s base operates a mechanical complication never previously integrated into a luxury writing instrument.
Further mechanical treatments include a threadless cap, while identity elements include a Y-shaped clip made from stamped black alloy, and a hexagonal nameplate brandishing the luxury maker’s 60º Anniversario emblem. On fountain pens, Automobili Lamborghini’s famous shield shines in gold, engraved into a reference-level, ruthenium-plated 18K gold nib. All examples are delivered in a black 60th Anniversary collector case.
All Montegrappa writing instruments are manufactured by hand at the company’s Venetian headquarters, located beneath Monte Grappa in Bassano del Grappa, Italy. During 2023, its artisanal factory will celebrate 111 years as Italy’s oldest and most advanced fountain pen manufacturer. The collaborative design and development process for Automobili Lamborghini 60° spanned a total of 24 months.
The Montegrappa Automobili Lamborghini 60° collection is available at the Montegrappa store in The Dubai Mall.
