In early April, Italian automotive startup, Totem Automobili showed off early renders of its Totem GT Electric, a modern-day restomod tribute to Alfa Romeo’s 1960’s Giulia GTA. Now, just seven weeks later, and the company has revealed its prototype specimen and final specs for what’s being described as “the most advanced restomod in the world.”
The Totem GT Electric will be limited to just 20 examples, each of which will be custom-made to order and will require 6,000 man-hours to complete. The car is built atop a custom-designed steel chassis with a hidden integrated roll-bar that’s paired with MacPherson suspension, though there’s also an optional electronic Bilstein suspension upgrade, as well as the option to upgrade to GT-R-spec items from the vehicle’s standard Brembo brakes. Drawing from a 60.9-kWh battery with an approximately 225-mile range, the Alfa tribute is powered by a proprietary electric motor that generates 518hp and 722ft-lbs of instantaneous torque, allowing for a top speed exceeding 150mph. Tipping the scales at just under 2,800lbs in total, the vehicle is crafted entirely by hand and is adorned in a full carbon fiber widebody bodywork kit that weighs less than 210lbs.
