F1® Speed – Podium Black


Montegrappa’s F1® SPEED Podium Black F1® SPEED is a luxury, hand-crafted, limited-edition writing collection designed and manufactured by Montegrappa in collaboration with the owners of the FIA

Formula One World ChampionshipTM. Key product information is as follows:

Using high-gloss black lacquer- and yellow gold plating, PODIUM BLACK is the second color variant in Montegrappa’s F1® SPEED collection, released in time for the  start of the 2022 FIA Formula One World Championship season. The new update adopts a bold, champion’s aesthetic to contrast the sporty finishing of F1® SPEED – RACING RED;

F1® SPEED uses advanced engineering, materials and design to recall hallmark elements of Formula 1® racing. Carbon fibre is used to create a grip section with unrivalled strength and weight. Carbon fibre is also used in the construction of the cap;

Additional hardware is milled and cast from brass and protected with thick, precious- metal plating. Numerically-controlled machining is also used to shape a unique 3D- modelled step that creates a smooth transition from barrel to grip section, leading to enhanced comfort and confident handle;

Adapting external design codes to the shape and functional demands of high-performance writing instruments requires special expertise and extensive prototyping. Design and development work for F1® SPEED spanned a period of 18 months;

Other materials provide playful enhancements that double down on the silhouette’s celebration of speed. A sterling-silver wheel hub features within a brass finial that replicates Formula 1® racing slicks. At the opposite end, car exhaust systems inspire a serial number housing realised in scorched stainless steel;

Available in rollerball and fountain pen modes, F1® SPEED balances the dynamics of Formula 1® design with the ergonomics of fine writing. Fountain pens are cartridge/converter-driven, and are fitted with a handmade 18K gold custom nib, available in six writing grades;

All variants of F1® SPEED are issued in limited editions of 372 numbered pieces, honouring the top speed ever recorded in a FIA Formula One World Championship race: 372.6 km/h by Juan Pablo
