Feel like going all out and indulging in obnoxious luxury? Grab yourself a $2,750 sterling-silver Maserati-branded pen. Yeah, that's plenty obnoxious. This pen heralds from Bologna, Italy, and the hand of Armando Simoni, apparently a famed luxo-pen crafter. The Maserati pen comes in roller ball ($2,500 — for the plebes) and fountain ($2,750) styles. Each features a Maserati trident and Maserati signature fender vents etched into the body and cap. 1,200 of the fountain pens and 714 roller balls are to be made, for a total of 1914 — the year Maserati was founded. We expect you to hate on it as you so ruthlessly did the Maserati Quattroporte [AutoWeek]
Ah, but for the true test we'll have to hand it over to Top Gear's tamed racing driver. Some say when he writes, smoke poors off the ball tip, and that when he misspells a word they correct the dictionary. All I know is he is called "The Stig"
So, how fast can The Stig write down all the corners on Top Gear's test track w/ this pen?
