List of products by brand MOMO ITALY
Momo was founded in 1964 by racing driver Gianpiero Moretti. That year, Moretti commissioned a craftsman to make a custom steering wheel for his racing car. That special wheel, the first Momo wheel in the company's history, had a thicker and better grip compared to the rest of the existing racing wheels at the time. Quickly, drivers from other teams noticed Moretti's new steering wheel and wanted the same for their cars, gaining fame within the racing community. The new MOMO steering wheel also caught the attention of Ferrari Formula One driver John Surtees, who wanted to install it in his vehicle. John Surtees' Ferrari, equipped with the MOMO steering wheel, won the Formula One world title in 1964. It was in this way that Gianpiero Moretti made his passion a reality, resulting in the birth of MOMO, whose name comes from the first syllables of Moretti Monza.
