This 800bhp Alfa GTAmodificata is Magnifico

Totem Automobili has taken another run at the Alfa Romeo GTA and it might be just be the most seductive Italian since Sophia Loren.

With a timeless beauty combined with hypercar power the million-pound GTAmodificata takes Alfa’s 105-series to a whole new level.

Modelled on the 1970 and 1971 European Touring Car Championship-winning GTAm built by Autodelta, Totem’s car retains its classic look, complete with exposed rivets, although the monocoque and bodywork is actually all carbon fiber. Aluminium is used for the front and rear subframes to keep weight down to a paltry 1095 kg, while the 3.2-litre twin-turbo V6 from Italtecnica delivers 796bhp and 538 lbft of torque. For comparison, the Ferrari SF90 makes 780bhp and weighs 680kg more.

The 90-degree V6 features dry sump lubrication, individual throttle bodies and a 3D-printed stainless steel exhaust manifold. Back in 1971 the GTAm Touring Car produced almost 240bhp and that was no slouch, but with more than three times the horsepower the Totem GTAmodificata can dispatch 62 mph from a standstill in 2.6 seconds and reach a vMax of 186 mph. This prodigious power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed sequential transmission and limited-slip differential.

With close to 200bhp more than the company’s previous GT Super and GT Electric, the GTAmodificata is also lighter, eschewing paint (for the most part) in favor of exposed carbon fiber outside and in. Even the stunning dished wheels, which evoke the classic GTA, use lightweight carbon and aluminium to save weight.

The GTAmodificato marks the end of the line for Totem’s Giulia GT-inspired cars and just five will be made.
