I've never driven the McLaren :cry: (obviously), but it is suppose to improve the feel of the car as you are centered in the car much like a racecar.

Should they do it? I have no idea really. If the seating position were to improve the car as a whole then yes.

I believe at least two were produced. Here is the write up from Ferrari:

365 P Speciale (1966)

In 1966, Pininfarina built a three-seater berlinetta over a V12 mid-engined sports-prototype chassis (4,390 cc, 380bhp). It created a huge furore. This once-off was built to order for Gianni Agnelli and was followed a year later by another special model for Luigi Chinetti. The 365 P Speciale boasted a more harmonious version of the lines of the Dino prototype. The headlights were faired in and the roof was made from Plexiglass for a brighter cockpit. This was also the first time that the characteristic star-shaped five-spoke alloy wheels made an appearance.

Yep, there are 2 cars
s/n 8815 & 8971

the car that i posted pics of is 8971
that one has always, and still is, belonged to the Chinetti family

not sure where the other one is, that might be the one from Texas that you are reffering to Boxer
