Indeed, while this electric vehicle requires a donor GT Junior, much of the old car is simply thrown away.

Of course, there’s modern suspension and brakes, too, plus a roll bar we’re promised is neatly integrated into the new tech-heavy cabin.

The price will no doubt be exceptionally high, especially given that Totem Automobili isn’t simply slotting an electric drivetrain into an old car, but tearing the whole thing apart and fundamentally changing its structure. Intrigued? We certainly are.
