Momo was founded in 1964 by race car driver Gianpiero Moretti. In that year, Moretti commissioned a local craftsman to produce a custom steering wheel for his own racing car. This special steering wheel – the first Momo steering wheel in the Company’s history – had a superior and thicker grip compared to the normal racing steering wheels available at the time.
In the beginning, Momo’s production was limited to the racing world, but in the 1970s, the Company started broadening its horizons by developing new product lines. Momo thus started the production of light alloy wheels and steering wheels for road cars, both for the aftermarket sector and supplying original equipment auto manufacturers, starting with Ferrari.
Momo brings to the market the finest Italian style, a long tradition of quality, our racing experience of many years, and technological innovation respectful of the environment.
