If Valentino Rossi's Dad Raced a Lamborghini Miura Instead of His Drift Audi R8

Once again, we're here to give you an answer to a question nobody asked. For now, we'll stick to what would happen if Graziano Rossi, Valentino's father, drove a race-converted Lamborghini Miura.
First of all, allow us to explain this idea isn't entirely off the chart. For one thing, Graziano does enjoy indulging in motorsport pleasures these days, using what can be described as a Lamborghini sister car for that purpose.

However, ever since we showed you the man's drift spec Audi R8 V10 earlier this month, we've been wondering what his next racer would be. Those of you who missed the story will be reminded we're talking about a serious bit of kit here. This R8 has been converted to rear-wheel-drive, while also packing a hydraulic handbrake.

When we came across the Sant'Agata Bolognese rendering above, which wears the obvious Il Dottore trademark, the connection was instant.

The image comes from British artist Khyzyl Saleem, who likes to come up with such 1 and 0 creations during his lunch breaks. Yes, we know, this sets pretty high standards.

"I've always loved the Lamborghini Miura, it's simplistic, timeless design is just pure joy. I also love the simplicity of 70s GT cars, fenders & aero which literally look as if they were stuck on with glue haha. So, I wanted to merge the two together and create a 70s esque, GT Miura Racecar," the artist said, describing the track-destined Raging Bull.

It's self-understood that such a Lambo would have to go through a complex restomod process. It's not just about the performance being brought to modern standards, but, for instance, the Miura's fiery episodes would have to be corrected.

Since Graziano was born in 1954, a Miura could be a teenage dream for the man, but we'll leave the image speak for itself now.
