I'm seeing images for a new Visconti "Torpedo". I don't have a deep knowledge to the Visconti line but I believe this is a brand new style/shape for them? 

 

A rather interesting pen nonetheless.

Looks like the shape of the discontinued Van Gogh Maxi. I wish they had continued the overlay on the cap. Somebody needs to learn design from Henry Simpole.

If this is the first new release after the departure of Dante Delvecchio I think they have a problem. It seems very derivative and 1660. euros. Really?

I saw this in person a few days ago and it is ridiculously cool. A bit too heavy for me personally, but all the guys loved it. We passed it around and everyone was just like "whoa" when they held it. It has a lot going on, and the build quality was really nice. The carbon fiber cap is sleek, and the ink window is quite cool being able to see the double reservoir power filler.

Thanks for the impression. Are you able to indicate pricing for this model and/or a release timeframe?

Should be out this spring (not sure what month yet), and looking like $1995 MSRP in the US.
