Limited edition fountain pens and rollerballs pay homage to Automobili Lamborghini’s 60th anniversary
Sant’Agata Bolognese – From the collaboration between Automobili Lamborghini and Montegrappa – renowned Italian leader in the luxury pen sector – Automobili Lamborghini 60° is born: the limited edition collection of fountain pens and rollerballs inspired by the sixties of super sports car design.
Automobili Lamborghini 60° is a precious all-Italian, handcrafted limited edition that blends advanced materials, technical prowess and futuristic design to pay homage to an Italian icon in its anniversary year.
The collection includes sixty fountain pens and sixty rollerballs in six distinctive Lamborghini colors – Arancio Apodis, Bianco Siderale and Verde Viper in bright shades, Blu Aegeus, Grigio Titans and Nero Noctis in the matt version – for a total of 720 pens with pure surfaces, precise outlines and proportions that celebrate the design of super sports cars.
The Lamborghini style codes are also present in the ultra-light hexagonal profile of the pen made of numerically-milled aerospace aluminum and covered in forged carbon fiber. The mechanical performance is of the highest level: in fountain pens, Montegrappa’s Power-Push offers writers speedy ink-filling with a single touch. Both models feature a unique release system for quick access to the ink chamber. Taking cues from the iconic Lamborghini aeronautical-inspired red toggle start button, a red alloy snap switch located on the base of the pens activates a mechanism integrated into the luxury writing instrument.
Further details include a threadless, safety-locking cap, while Lamborghini elements include a stamped black alloy Y-clip and a hexagonal plate bearing the super sports car manufacturer’s 60th anniversary emblem. In the fountain pens, the famous Automobili Lamborghini shield shines in gold, engraved in a ruthenium-plated 18-karat gold nib. All specimens are enclosed in a black 60th anniversary collector’s case.
