Hamburg, February 9th, 2023 – Montblanc and Ferrari came together for the global launch of the new Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 Limited Edition 599 writing instrument, the latest chapter in the partnership between the writing pioneer and the automotive legend. Hosted at Montblanc Haus, a destination to inspire writing at the luxury Maison’s Hamburg headquarters, the event brought together VIP guests and international media for a first look at a new generation of writing instruments, co-designed under the direction of Flavio Manzoni, Ferrari Chief Design Officer.
For one night only, the Ferrari Daytona SP3, the latest addition to the automotive marque’s Icona series, was on display at the Montblanc Haus entrance so guests could discover the car's distinctive design features that inspired the creation of the innovative writing instrument.
Following cocktails and an immersion into the world of Montblanc writing culture, Montblanc CEO Nicolas Baretzki and Ferrari CEO Benedetto Vigna were joined by Ferrari Chief Design Officer Flavio Manzoni and Montblanc Director of Writing Culture Alessandra Elia to formally unveil the writing instruments to guests. Guests enjoyed dinner by Michelin-starred chef Heinz Otto Wehmann and entertainment by Italian-style jazz ensemble Four on Six band.
A feat in Montblanc writing instrument craftsmanship befitting the design and performance of the new Daytona SP3, the Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 Limited Edition 599 leans into the unmistakable Ferrari style lexicon to create a new shape of Montblanc writing instrument in light titanium, expressing the car’s fluid shape and signature design details. While the outside design is distinctly Ferrari, the ‘engine’ of the pen is assuredly Montblanc with its handcrafted Au 750 solid white gold nib and newly positioned hidden filling mechanism, complimenting the writing instrument’s sleek silhouette.
The Montblanc Ferrari Stilema SP3 Limited Edition 599 is the second writing instrument to be released under the collaboration of the two iconic names in the luxury arena following the introduction of the Montblanc Great Characters Enzo Ferrari Edition, a writing tribute to the great pioneer and visionary founder of the prestigious Ferrari automobile marque.
