This is the new Totem GT electric based on the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA.

Totem, an Italian company that specializes in reviving vintage cars, is now working hard on rebuilding an Alfa Romeo Giulia GT Junior, but a Giulia with a difference.

The latest work from Totem sees them converting classic alfa to Epower for the first time. The GT Electric is based on the GT Junior, one of the most beautiful cars ever produced, however the GT Electric exterior features design inspirations from a few Giulia models from across the years.

A 50.4-kWh battery pack provides a range of 199 miles at “standard pace,” according to the company. The prototype car has a 6.6-kW onboard charger, but production cars will have a more-powerful fast-charging system, the company confirmed.

Totem said the battery pack weighs 771.6 pounds, but the carbon-fiber body will offset some of that weight. Only 10 percent of the original chassis is retained, with the rest replaced by aluminum and carbon fiber to support over 510hp and 940Nm of power. This helps the GT Electric accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 3.4 seconds.

Totem has made some subtle changes: The GT Electric has four headlights instead of the original two, the C-pillar is redesigned, and the Alfa grille badge lacks the bars of the original. Totem also redesigned the underside of the car to improve aerodynamics, creating a flat floor with rear air diffusers to generate enhanced downforce.

The interior has been significantly updated as you would expect, with a digital dash display and Bluetooth infotainment system.
