In creating Bugatti Pur Sang Duotone writing instruments, Montegrappa studied the details and surfaces of the Bugatti Veyron, inside and out. The cars themselves are often supplied in two-tone schemes, reflected in the series’ name. Duotone pens’ caps and barrels join metal components with superior-quality Italian resin, offered in four combinations: Indigo Blue/Rhodium, Bugatti Blue/Rhodium, Matte Black /Ruthenium, Argus Pheasant Brown/Rose Gold, 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, known as “macaron” in French, 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.
All Bugatti Pur Sang Duotone pens are packaged in specially-designed boxes with the Bugatti badge’s oval cross-section. The lid’s inner surface features the “Dynamic Quilting” pattern, while the outer case suggests carbon fibre, as used extensively in the Veyron.
