The Momo Gritti is again one of the steering wheels of Momo with many stories, secrets and mysteries. As mentioned in previous articles, Momo developed a variety of steering wheels, which were manufactured during it’s lifespan exclusively for Momo or almost exclusively or with minor modifications exclusively for other car manufacturers.

Momo Gritti is one of those very interesting examples. When Momo Gritti (and it really only counts as Momo Gritti, if “Gritti” is engraved on the center spoke, otherwise it bears the name of the vehicle type for which it was made by Momo), there were a variety of versions – in terms of material, finish and size.
The steering wheel was available as a wooden and leather steering wheel and there were also several versions. It was available in light and dark wood (each with polished and brushed spokes) and in brown leather (with polished or black spokes) and black leather (with polished, brushed or black spokes). The smallest size of the Momo Gritti was 350mm, there were 365mm, 370mm, 380mm versions and also for Momo a very rare size: 390mm.
To my best knowledge, it was built from end 70s to early 90s. All of these versions had besides its own Gritti horn button an additional cover ring, which was put underneath the horn button covering the screws of the steering wheel. That cover ring was polished, brushed or black anodized for the Momo Gritti variants.
