Montegrappa’s newest trophy pen celebrates 70 years of Formula 1 – fusing titanium and carbon fibre with high- calibre performance and a passion for extremes.
With only 100 examples made in each mode, the Montegrappa F1 Seventy luxury writing instrument is a trophy in its own right.
The current 2020 season is once again proving the sport’s incredible resilience. After seven decades at the vanguard of valour, design and engineering, Formula1 is showing no sign of slowing down.
Speed-freaks will appreciate a slick rollerball option, while purists can feel the acceleration of a fountain pen fitted with a custom, 18K gold nib – backed by a proprietary piston-fill system that has long been the envy of rival makers. A deluxe F1 presentation case houses both models.
A radical rethink of the Montegrappa Extra Otto luxury writing instrument uses titanium and carbon fibre to create a housing among the lightest and strongest in its class. Advanced tooling is used to mill every edge to perfection and accentuate the flawless writing performance of an elite silhouette that belongs firmly at the front row of the grid.
The Formula One Seventy writing instrument (€ 4,750) possesses flash and finesse in equal measure.
Racing-red enamel is applied to a debossed F1 logo in the cap top, and special, jubilee-season branding is ‘ghost’-etched into the barrel and cap.
Tonal racing-stripes, tyre tread patterning and a high-grade Damascus polish provide further surface detailing with superior grip. The victor’s chequered flag is also incorporated onto a titanium cap band: only 33 drivers from 14 countries have won the FIA Formula One World Championship since its inception.
