Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA Restomod
Totem Automobili, an Italian exotic car brand in the restomod car segment, announces the launch of its first handcrafted luxury vehicle: the Totem GT electric with an external body reconstructed entirely in carbon fiber. With its sensual design, electric heart and sporty soul the new GT electric is an handcrafted timeless restoration of the glorious Alfa Romeo Giulia GT 1600/1750 of the 60’
The GT electric has been projected by Riccardo Quaggio, an Italian automotive designer, founder of Totem Automobili and conceived with a redesigned silhouette in carbon fiber, an electric motor and state-of-art technology. It took three years of intense team working, craftsmanship, engineering development and tests to produce those limited production sports cars.
Extraordinary performance is the result of a substantial restoration. Only 10% of the original chassis was maintained and coupled to new aluminum suspensions tailored for this car. A reinforcement with roll-cage adherent to the external body was studied to add stability and resistance to the new powertrain. At the front Totem evoked the competitive fame of the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTam making it 180mm wider. The classic fuel engine was substituted by an mid-rear electric motor, able to grant 518bhp, a longer duration and a green vision.
McFly technology allows to generate realistic and potentially endless performance, sound and vibration packages; the sensations of endothermic motors are perceived in a completely new and always different driving experience, designed by the customer's wishes.
The meticolous study of the exterior and interior design have been executed to dramatically intensify the driving experience and stimulate five senses. GT electric owner may create a bespoke version and the website allows to simulate a tailor made Grand Tourer. GT electric exterior is characterized by a curvy shape inspired by the charme of the original silhouette, sophisticated details recalling the superb past of the legendary car.
The interior is equipped with new designed carbon fiber and genuine leather seats recalling the race world and the notorious 1750 Giulia GT seats. The dashboard recalls the vintage personality of the Alfa Giulia GT.
The gauges, two digital displays enclosed in carbon fiber rings, come in the classic round shape and match the air vents, both influenced by its sporty past. The grand tourer comes standard with an antitheft system and electrically controlled windows, new 400v heating, air-conditioning system and keyless ignition. A modern car infotainment designed in vintage style provides an exceptional audio system uniquely created for GT electric to experience the highest audio quality possible
