+1 Absolutely! This is so cool. I was amazed at how high the driver's feet are in comparison to his hands, now that the higher nose and larger splitters have come into play. They continue to ask more and more of the driver.

The seating position looks very uncomfortable, and visibility doesn't seem to be that great either.

As an aside:
One of the lowest slung cars I ever got to drive when I was young and limber, was the Miura SV of a family friend. Not too comfi, but a lot of fun. Seeing four banks of a total of 12 air intakes in the bottom of the rear view mirror and the sound of the engine is something else.
It didn't have the usual euro head light flasher, but driving from the service center near Nürnberg to Düsseldorf on the autobahn, flames from downshifting with a bit of gas would literally light up the night behind the car, and made traffic get out of the way. No kidding.
I forgot the engines oil volume, but remember it took about 30 min to get up to operating temp.
Also, a just installed alternator was done at the end of the drive.
