Share this article

While retaining the authentic signature of the Giulia GTA, the designers have reinterpreted its original silhouette to create a Gran Turismo that is stunning from every angle. Starting with one of the most iconic Italian cars of the 60s and 70s, the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, the team has created one of the most advanced restomods in the segment and developed the most powerful Giulia GTA the world has ever seen. The Giulia GTA was unveiled in 1965, and over the next seven years it racked up a long list of racing victories that have made it a legend in the world of motoring.

The Totem GT Series has been redesigned in form and materials to create a carbon fiber supercar with a smooth and timeless line. The formal research behind the details of the Totem GT Super and GT Electric will give continuity to a legend of the past by applying some of the original features into the new styling cue signed by Totem. Starting with the development of high-precision milling molds, the entire exterior bodywork has been reconstructed entirely in carbon fiber to make the car as light as possible, but also to achieve a perfectly smooth surface. The result is simply stunning. The design research carried out by the Totem team preserves the original soul of the Alfa Romeo Giulia GTA, while at the same time highlighting the excellent craftsmanship and manufacturing processes behind the development of every single component. Starting with a small section of the original steel chassis, Totem has developed a carbon fiber monocoque coupled with high strength aluminum subframes at the front and rear of the car. And the team has removed the old fashioned petrol engine from the donor car.

How will we see the Giulia arrive made by Stellantis?

In 2026, Alfa Romeo itself plans to introduce the new generation of the Giulia model, with the Giulia Electric signifying an important step toward the brand’s electrification. This move is a part of Alfa Romeo’s strategy under the Stellantis group to transition to a fully electric lineup by 2027. Obviously the new Giulia Electric will be a vehicle built for a target group with an ever growing electric mindset. Hence the new Giulia GT Electric will be a demonstration of Alfa Romeo's dedication to combining innovation with its storied heritage in manufacturing premium vehicles. Set to be developed in Italy, its production will take place in the Pomigliano D’Arco plant near Naples, utilizing Stellantis's STLA platform for electric vehicles. This platform accommodates both electric and hybrid powertrains.

Alfa Romeo’s strategy allows for a gradual transition catering to diverse consumer preferences, while also maintaining production of the current Stelvio and Giulia models with combustion engines until the new electric models are launched. Jean-Philippe Imparato, Executive Officer at Alfa Romeo, regards the Giulia GT Electric as an embodiment of Italian craftsmanship and innovation, poised to reinforce Alfa Romeo's position as a global premium brand within the Stellantis portfolio. The new Giulia GT Electric is set to be a key player in Alfa Romeo’s strategy to harmonize tradition with innovation, marking a significant step towards a future where electric mobility takes center stage. 

Though it might not be that comparable to the stunningly beautiful version of Totem, we expect the new electric Giulia to turn heads too - we’ll keep you posted.
