Totem Automobili has completed the first example of its debut project – the Totem GT Electric. The Italian startup’s stunning electrified restomod is based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA from the 1960s.
The legendary racing history, as well as the original craftsmanship of the Giulia GTA, remain at the very heart of the project. Totem opted to widen the body and reconstruct it in carbon fibre, giving it smoother lines while making the car as light as possible, while the front features rally-inspired quad LED headlights and a carbon front grille decorated with geometric patterns. The rear of the car also houses new LED tail lights.
Only 10% of the original chassis has been maintained, and new components include full aluminium MacPherson suspension and an internal hidden steel roll bar. The new electric motor generates 518bhp and 940Nm of torque, pushing the GT Electric from 0-100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, while the vehicle’s 50.4 kWh battery pack is good for 320 km of range.
The interior is equally as charming, with newly designed carbon fibre and leather front seats that pay homage to the notorious 1750 Giulia GT seats. The retro-style dashboard features gauges in individual round-shaped digital displays with carbon fibre trim around both the displays and air vents. The gear lever, steering wheel and other interior features have all been sophisticatedly crafted and include bespoke elements to fit the driver best.
Only 20 examples will be built, with most of the slots already taken.
