Montblanc Great Characters Enzo Ferrari Special EditionEvery design detail of the new Great Characters Enzo Ferrari Special Edition evokes the achievements and character of this pioneer of speed and automotive engineering. The color of the precious resin of the cap and barrel is inspired by the Ferrari color “Rosso 70 Anni”. The cone is engraved with two dates, one marks the birth of Enzo Ferrari and the other his first victory on a racetrack in 1923. The Montblanc emblem that crowns the writing instrument in yellow resin represents the colour of the city of Modena. It is embedded in a metal grid, inspired by a vintage car grill.
The ring on the cap top features the engraving “OFFICINA MECCANICA ALFREDO FERRARI”, a reference to Ferrari’s father Alfredo ´s workshop and his birthplace. The writing instrument’s metal ruthenium-coated clip is laser-engraved with Enzo Ferrari’s own words: “You cannot describe passion, you can only live it”. The back of the cap reveals the iconic “Prancing horse” logo of Ferrari with a famous quote by Countess Paolina Biancoli (Le porterà fortuna), who gave the horse to Enzo in recognition of her son who had it painted on his plane during World War I for good luck. The edition is available as a Rollerball and Ballpoint, as well as a Fountain Pen with an Au585 solid gold rhodium coated nib engraved with a Ferrari 250 GTO wheel, one of the most famous Ferrari cars, with the addition of the word - ”Pilota”.
