Back in 1962, Alfa Romeo introduced the successor to their popular Giulietta car in the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Just a few short years later, in 1965, they unveiled a more performance-focused edition called the Giulia GTA that would shape the brand’s releases for years to come. Now, a company called Totem is revamping that classic rally-style car for the modern day as the Totem Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Electric.
Interestingly, this is not a from-scratch recreation. Rather, the company is sourcing original Giulia GT Junior 1300/1600s, stripping them down to about 10% of their original chassis, and building them up from there. Plus, they’re taking inspiration from across years and years of Giulia models for the build — including a front end inspired by the rally era, seats reminiscent of models from the 1970s, rear lights modeled after the original Giulia, and more. Of course, there are also plenty of modern-day additions, including comprehensive carbon fiber bodywork, a digital dash display and Bluetooth infotainment system, a Brembo braking system, LED lighting, and — most importantly — an electric motor system good for 518hp and a 200-mile range. For availability and pricing, you’ll want to reach out directly to Totem.
