All you want to know about the Momo Signature Steering Wheel Series

Even though I’ve posted articles about a few – not all – of these Momo Signature Series Steering Wheels, I still get tons of emails with questions about the Momo Signature Steering Wheel Series. I am trying to answer at least 95% of these questions with this article.

Which Momo Steering Wheels belong to the Momo Signature Steering Wheel Series?

That’s an easy one. Momo Jackie Stewart, Momo Clay Regazzoni, Momo Niki Lauda, Momo Jacky Ickx, Momo Ronnie Peterson, Momo Mario Andretti, Momo Gilles Villeneuve, Momo George Follmer, Momo Dieter Quester, Momo Roland Asch and – since there is a signature on it as well – Momo Magnus Walker. 

There was also a wooden wheel with an engraved signature of Gianpiero Moretti, founder of Momo, some say it’s part of the series. Same with the Momo John Player Special Steering Wheel, even though it does not have a signature on it, it might count due to the similarities.

Here are some pictures of the above mentioned wheels. Had a Momo Gilles Villeneuve but without the horn pad, had a Momo Roland Asch but no horn button. Never had a Momo George Follmer nor a Momo Dieter Quester in my hands. 

Which Steering Wheel was the first / the last / the rarest / the most common of the Momo Signature Steering Wheel Series?

Well, there are no definitive answers to these questions, but I try to answer them based on my best knowledge. I had or have quite a few of these Signature Steering Wheels, no Momo George Follmer, no Momo Dieter Quester, no Gianpiero Moretti one and no Momo Magnus Walker – at least not the original one.

I checked all the pictures that I’ve taken over the years and based on these 100+ Momo Signature Wheels I might be able to give a hip estimate about which one was the oldest and youngest of each wheel. These numbers are based on the ones I had and I’ve googled a bit. If you have more precise information, please let me know and I’ll update the dates.

Based on these dates, the Momo Jackie Stewart was the first of the Signature Series, the only one I’ve seen with the stacked Momo Logo on the back. Then the ones with Made in Italy and so on. If you have a Momo Signature Steering Wheel and it’s outside of these dates, please contact me.

The Momo Jackie Stewart Steering Wheel appears to be the most common one, also because it was produced for the longest period. Followed by the Momo Clay Regazzoni, Momo Jackie Ickx, Momo Niki Lauda and the Momo Roland Asch which were also produced for a longer period (except the Roland Asch wheel). Somewhat more rare is the Momo Ronnie Peterson. Then there is the Gilles Villeneuve and much more rare the Momo George Follmer. The Momo Dieter Quester is by far the rarest among the Momo Signature Steering Wheel Series I was told.

Were all of the Momo Signature Steering Wheels available in black and silver?

Roughly half of the Momo Signature Steering Wheels were available in black and silver finish. The Momo Ronnie Peterson, Momo Mario Andretti, Momo George Follmer, Momo Roland Asch and Momo Dieter Quester were available in black only. The Gianpiero Moretti Signature Steering Wheel, which may or may not belong to the series, came in silver with a wooden rim.

Do they all have the same diameter?

All the Momo Signature Steering Wheels came in 350mm diameter. But, there are a few exceptions. The Momo Jacky Ickx and Momo Gilles Villeneuve also came in 320mm diameter. And, most likely the rarest exception is the Momo Niki Lauda in 370mm. 

Is the grip size of all the Momo Signature Steering Wheels the same?

Thickest is the Momo Jackie Stewart with a thickness of 34mm, the Momo Mario Andretti, the Momo Ronnie Peterson and the Momo Niki Lauda have all a thickness of 32mm, the Momo Clay Regazzoni has 30mm and the Momo Jacky Ickx has 29mm. Can’t say anything about the others.

Is the Momo Jackie Stewart the only flat Steering Wheel among the Series?

Yes, thats the only flat Signature Steering Wheel from Momo. All the others have a semi-dish.

Did the Momo Clay Regazzoni come with a horn pad?

Not that I am aware of. It is known that the design is based on the Momo Prototipo S and some of those came with a horn pad. The ones of the Momo Signature Series that came with a horn pad are the Momo Mario Andretti and the Momo Gilles Villeneuve. The Mario Andretti is based on the Momo C35/Cavallino but has a different horn pad – as well as the Momo Gilles Villeneuve, which has the same design than the Momo Jacky Ickx minus the center thumb pad.

Did they all come with Helmet Horn Buttons? or Signature Buttons?

There was a Helmet Horn Button available for all the Momo Signature Steering Wheels, except the Momo Magnus Walker, that didn’t come with a Signature Button either, it had a Urban Outlaw Horn Button. 

The earlier Momo Signature Steering Wheels came with the earlier chrome style Helmet Horn Button (Momo Jackie Stewart, Momo Clay Regazzoni and Momo Jacky Ickx), later they had the more simple black Helmet Horn button style.

For a few Signature Steering Wheels, there was also a Signature Horn button available, sometimes even in different colour combinations. To my best knowledge, there was no Momo Clay Regazzoni Signature Horn button available, same with the Momo Roland Asch. Again, can’t say anything about the Momo Dieter Quester and the Momo George Follmer.
