Totem’s GT Electric Alfa Romeo Conversion Now in the Metal
Back in April of 2020, we shared news of an Italian group called Totem Automobili who were working on a completely reworked and electrified Alfa Romeo GT Junior. Well it looks like they’re one step towards their goal of making 20 of these by 2022. Just last week, images surfaced that showed an actual example of the car in the real world.
The Totem GT Electric looks really awesome in the metal, though a part of us suspects that this COULD be a very well done 3D render. The only image of this car with people in the background is a little obscured, but let’s give them the benefit of the doubt. It’s just that very few outlets are actually covering the development of this story and even Totem’s own webpage and Instagram page aren’t very informative.
Here’s some more photos of the car as well as well as some information about the project.
About the Totem GT Electric
Both head and rear lights have been redesigned to give a new face to GT. Frontally, we put the classic double lights of the 1750/2000 version, which looks back to the “rally” design: the new position of the driving headlamps recalls the supplementary lights mounted over the original bumper. In the rear, we integrated a new round light, leaving the rectangular shape of the old light; the rear fog/reverse light has been moved over the plate. All lights are LED.
The control board is fully digital, with 2 screens of 3.5” and a passenger screen to control battery usage. Windows are electrically controlled; a sophisticated antitheft system is included; keyless system to start is provided.
The floor pan has been completely redesigned to increase the ground effect. In front, a new oilpan in aluminum and carbon fibre conveys air to flatpan, while in the rear there are two big carbon fibre extractors, proving grip on the ground.
By default we offer one of the best audio systems in the world, made specifically for this auto by AUDIO DEVELOPMENT. It is possible to extend the audio system with additional speakers and subwoofer.
A modern air conditioning system is available, specifically designed for this car, with evaporator and dryer.
Front and rear windows, with internal heating, are identical to the original ones. We changed the side butterfly windows with new fixed windows and new pillars. Windows are available in white, green o exclusive fumes colors.
The Infotainment system has a vintage style, as classic old car radio 3,5”, but it is state-of-the-art technology. With Bluetooth connection, interactive maps, DAB radio and many apps.
