TWO ITALIAN ICONS LAMBORGHINI AND MONTEGRAPPA COLLIDE TO CREATE A LIMITED EDITION WRITING COLLECTION
Automobili Lamborghini 60° is an all-Italian, limited-edition writing collection designed and manufactured by Montegrappa in collaboration with Automobili Lamborghini, to be available at selected boutiques worldwide in September..
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 House of Sant'Agata Bolognese, 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 fountain pen and rollerball configurations that channel the mechanical and aesthetic audacity of Automobili 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.
Next-level mechanical performance is 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 Automobili 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.
Colours offered across the edition echo Lamborghini’s unique palette, with a choice of bold body finishes in high-gloss – Arancio Apodis (orange), Bianco Siderale (white) and Verde Viper (green) –with Blu Aegeus (blue); Grigio Titans (grey) and Nero Noctis (black) in mat
Further mechanical treatments include a threadless cap, while identity elements include a Y-shaped clip made from stamped black alloy, and a hexagonal name plate 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.
Priced from € 5000, Automobili Lamborghini 60° can be purchased from department stores, as well as via montegrappa.com
