Bugatti Pen by Ferrari da Varese - Click above or below-right for high-res image gallery

If you're going to sign a check for seven figures, you're not going to use just any old Bic ballpoint, are you? Of course not. For just such an occasion, Bugatti has commissioned Ferrari to make them a suitable writing instrument.

ab-bugattipen-10p.jpgWell, sort of. This Bugatti pen is made by a company called Ferrari da Varese, which, to our knowledge, doesn't have any ties to the eponymous purveyor of sportscars from Maranello. Call it a coincidence then, but don't dare call it a knock-off. The Bugatti Type A pen from Ferrari da Varese is designed by Luigi Trenti, crafted from aluminum and plated in nickel, then sterling silver, then palladium and finally platinum, for an unrivaled luster. The nib is made from rhodium-coated 18kt gold, complimented by a sapphire glass window and a lacquered black embossed Bugatti logo.

The 16-cm-long pen weighs a solid 95 grams and just for good measure, it comes in a leather and aluminum box. Which is a good thing, because each of the 499 fountain and 499 roller-ball pens cost a very car-like $15,000. Have a closer look in the gallery below.
