Montegrappa is based in the Northern part of Italy, the same place where Bugatti’s founder Ettore was born. That is just one of the things that connect the two brands, luxury and care for automobile greatness being the others.

Dubbed Bugatti Pur Sang Duotone, the name of the new collection itself was inspired by Ettore, who would employ the term “pur-sang”, French for “thoroughbred” to describe his vehicles.

According to the creator of the new collection, to design the new writing instruments, Montegrappa studied the details and surfaces of the Veyron, inside and out. The cars themselves are often supplied in two-tone schemes, a detail that is reflected in the series’ name. Duotone pens’ caps and barrels join metal components with superior-quality Italian resin, offered in five combinations: Indigo Blue/Rhodium, Bugatti Blue/Rose Gold, and Pearl/Rose Gold.

Starting on the cap and running through the complete pen, the metal surfaces are engraved with a pattern of “Dynamic Quilting,” recalling the upholstery within a Veyron.

Bugatti Pur Sang Duotone pens are offered as fountain pens, rollerballs, ballpoint pens, and mechanical pencils. For the fountain pen, an 18k gold nib is fitted, also engraved with the ‘Dynamic Quilting’ pattern and featuring the famous Bugatti logo. The oval logo also appears in full colour on the top of the cap of every pen, while the shape of the Veyron’s headlights inspired the engraving around the cap ring,“ Montegrappa details in a press release.

Furthermore, it’s not just the pens themselves that have Veyron-inspired adornments. All Bugatti Pur Sang Duotone pens are packaged in specially designed oval boxes to recall the marque’s logo. The lid’s inner surface features the “Dynamic Quilting” pattern, while the outer case suggests carbon fiber, as used extensively in the actual hypercar.
