S.T. Dupont Unveils Le Mans 24 Hour Collection

June 7, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco

 

 

2023 celebrates two important milestones: the centenary of the “24 Hours Le Mans’ alongside 150 years of “S.T. Dupont’. To commemorate the occasion, these two iconic brands have partnered to launch a new limited edition, “Le Mans 24 Hour’ by S.T. Dupont, a collection that brings legends and elegance together.

The Prestige Collection takes the iconic trophy, helmet, and curb colors of the Le Mans circuit and gives it extra horsepower by including a replica of the iconic race car seen on the track. The stripes, numbers, and sponsors are all represented on this emblem of the company and luxury sector. Blue lacquer and a finish in yellow gold are readily recognizable colors of the circuit, along with the symbol for day and night to honor this 24-hour race. The base of the pen resembles the standard 24 Hours of Le Mans trophy while the Le Grand Dupont design pays homage to the aerodynamic lines of a sports car.

 

 

The Prestige range includes a smoker’s set and a writing set, each of which is accompanied by a keyring shaped like a helmet and is limited to 288. The collector, limited to 188, brings together the two sets and their accessories, with a bonus set of cufflinks specific to this set.

Retail prices from $5,750 to $10,950

 

 

The Premium range highlights other legendary colors of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the manufacturers who have passed the test with distinction. It comprises cufflinks, a Line D large multifunctional writing instrument, and a Line 2 lighter. The figure 8 is repeated and engraved on each item, symbolizing the curves and bends of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and recreating the image of movement. The range is available in blue, orange, or red.

Retail prices from $1,795 to $1,895

 

 

The Standard collection does not bear any engraved figures, rather it presents the 24 Hours of Le Mans logo in its iconic simplicity. It is offered in the same three shades with the same finishes, but the designs are straight lines. This design honors the legendary Mulsanne Straight and emphasizes the vast speeds possible on the straightaways. This range comprises two Jet lighters: the Slim 7 and Maxi-jet, cigar stand cutter, ashtrays and Défi Millennium ballpoint pen.

Retail prices from $279 to $575

 

 

The last creation showcases leather goods. The S.T. Dupont engineers developed several uniquely crafted leather goods that are developed in such a way as to call to mind the unique fabric of the interior of the race car. These durable creations are available as either a 48H travel bag, a backpack, a shoulder bag, card holder, wallets and keyrings. 

Retail prices from $245 to $395

Adrenaline. Longevity. Endurance. The attributes that have fueled one hundred power-driven years of racing are exhibited in this unique collection from S.T. Dupont. The full collection will be displayed at PCA 2023, and available for pre-order now with delivery planned for July 2023. Additional information will be communicated during the coming weeks.
