Best brand new Momo you can buy

Momo Heritage steering wheels

I am an old school kinda guy, you know that. So I’d say, I’d probably never buy a brand new Momo steering wheel. Main reason, it is missing something. First patina, then history. But there are Momo steering wheels of the current line-up that sort of incorporate all that. Old school look and patinated leather. What a great idea to come up with. Momo started with the Prototipo, the Indy and a few others. Continued with the 1968 Racing Heritage and will probably continue with some other steering wheels.

The Momo Heritage Series is the most noticeable line of their product range. Classic cars don’t roll off a factory anymore, so a brand new steering wheel should at least have a little bit of the old school touch, look and feel, of the classic. Momo thought so to and incorporated all that into their Momo Heritage Series. 

BRAND NEW leather wheel:
Momo Heritage Prototipo

The Momo Prototipo is certainly the most known steering wheel among the Momo steering wheels, the demand is unbroken and with the Momo Heritage the symbiosis of old tradition with modern technology is absolutely well accomplished. Just like in the years before, the Momo Prototipo is offered with a diameter of 350mm. What particularly speaks for the Momo Heritage Prototipo in a classic car is that Momo with much effort has given the leather a patinated look. So you get a new steering wheel, but it looks a bit like it’s got something to tell already. In addition, Momo has used the stacked logo again – this time on the front. The offer is rounded off by a special Momo Heritage horn button, black with a yellow stacked logo.

Of course, the Momo Heritage Prototipo is not only available in black. If you have silver interior pieces, the silver Momo Heritage Prototipo might be the right steering wheel for you and your classic.

BRAND NEW wood wheel: 
Momo Heritage Indy

The perennial favorite among the wooden steering wheels of Momo is and remains the Momo Indy. This steering wheel is available from Momo since the 60s. If you want a wooden steering wheel, you should definitely go for that one. Wood is much more exposed to the tides and forces of nature than leather. It is very common to find cracks in the wood of very old wooden steering wheels, they quickly develop from moisture, drought and heat. Therefore, the Momo Heritage Indy is a good choice: the look of the early Indy steering wheels – but with mature and dried wood. Again, with the stacked logo from the period of 1968-1973 and the stacked logo horn button and in diameter 350mm.

The Momo Indy is not yet available with black aluminum spokes, but it’s coming soon. Other popular wooden options are the Momo Heritage California and the Momo Heritage Grand Prix.

BRAND NEW track wheel: 
Momo Mod. 07

Momo did not make any dedicated Heritage track wheels. Of course you can use any other brand new Heritage wheel on the track. But if you want more grip, you need something else. Best choice would be the Momo Rally 2000 but that’s not available anymore. Most popular alternative is the Momo Mod. 07.
Next best choice is the Mod. 78, it can be found in so many track cars these days, just like the Momo Rally 2000. It has a semi-dish as well and still maintains the classic look.
For a more modern look and/or a smaller diameter, the Mod. 88 is the right choice. It’s available in 320 and 350mm and comes with a d-cut for easier ingress and egress, especially valuable on tighter cars.

ONE MORE THING: Momo 1968 Racing Heritage

After Momo has launched the Momo Heritage Series, they came up with something even more cool. Remember the Momo signature series? It all started with the Momo Jackie Stewart steering wheel – not just for me. So Momo decided to give it another go. And here it is.
That is just a beautiful and classic steering wheel. Flat, like almost all the vintage steering wheels, thick grip – and limited to 999 pieces!
