The Momo Prototipo Black Edition is art in wheel form

Momo’s new limited-edition Prototipo is utterly glorious and we need it

When a steering wheel looks this good, do you even need a car to attach it to? 

This is the glorious, retro-inspired Black Edition of Momo’s iconic Prototipo, and we might just have to buy one to stick on the wall at TG Towers. Now that’s what we’d call art.

Milan-based Momo is well known for its fashionable yet functional wheels – the Prototipo’s lightweight but thick-rimmed design has barely changed since the first-generation appeared in the late 1960s. Plus, if it’s good enough for the Porsche 917, it’s probably good enough to inspire us lot to do a bit of writing…

You can only get the Black Edition in 350mm diameter form and it’ll set you back $395 all-in, but isn’t it just the best looking steering wheel you’ve ever seen? Thoughts in the comments section below please.
