I have heard rumours that CHITTY CHITTY BANG BANG is going to be re-released (if one calls the original pan-scan edition a worthwhile release - I don't) in a 'Special Edition' Widescreen Anamorphic format. I cannot find any actual thread to this, but does anyone know for sure?

No, but I'm there to buy a SE widescreen version if MGM would just release it.
I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I own the current P&S version. It's one of only a couple P&S DVDs I have. I got it for very cheap (under $10) and my daughter has enjoyed it several times, so even though not OAR I'm glad I got it.
I'd bet that if MGM did this one right they would be surprised at how strong sales would be. Probably would exceed the original release.

This was the only film produced by the James Bond production team in 70MM Super Panavision. The film has one of the most beautiful production designs pf the sixties, and while it is enjoyable in Pan & Scan, the widescreen image only adds to the enjoyment - if you don't like the film at least it looks beautiful. If only all those "Wonka" people would petition MGM, Hmm.....
