Ferrari Drives Pen

Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 Limited Edition marks the latest chapter in the partnership between writing instrument pioneer Montblanc and automotive legend Ferrari.

Co-designed under the direction of Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari Chief Design Officer, the Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 Limited Edition 599 leans into the Ferrari style lexicon to create a brand-new shape of Montblanc writing instrument.

The Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 pays homage to the design DNA that makes every Ferrari car recognisable – the architecture and proportions, the surfaces, volumes and aerodynamics. This DNA is also known as a stilema, referring to the instantly recognisable element in a design that reveals its identity and creator.

A reinterpretation of the timeless design of iconic Ferraris using innovative materials and state-of-the-art technology, the Icona series is among the most exclusive Ferrari collections. The second car to join the limited edition Icona range is the Daytona SP3 with a name that evokes the legendary 1-2-3 finish at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 1967, one of the most spectacular feats in Ferrari history. The newest Icona is an homage to the prototypes that earned the marque its unparalleled motor sport status.

The Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 expresses the iconic Ferrari Daytona SP3 car’s fluid shape through the use of a single material for the cap and barrel: light titanium, rarely seen in Montblanc writing instruments. The angle of the cap top mimics the way the Daytona SP3’s nose slices through the air, while the lined accents on the forepart and barrel are derived from the blades on the car’s bumpers, where lines create a visual game of light and dark with bars that seem to disappear.

While the outside design is distinctly Ferrari, the ‘engine’ of the pen is assuredly Montblanc. The heart of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 is its growling V12 engine; in the Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3, a handcrafted Au 750 solid white gold nib and hidden filling mechanism drive a different kind of petrol through its veins – ink. Expertly made by hand in over 30 steps, the Montblanc nib is an expression of time-honoured craftsmanship, while the newly positioned ink filling mechanism expresses Montblanc and Ferrari’s shared innovative spirit.

Inspired by the Ferrari Design engineering vision, the ink filling mechanism in the Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 has been structured in a way that is new to Montblanc’s repertoire, complementing the writing instrument’s sleek silhouette.
