It's a new orifice for a mechaphilia sufferer to have a crack at when they get bored of the exhaust pipes.
Can't see any practical use for it other than alleged aesthetics.

I think the purpose is to make you look cooler, younger and more handsome whilst compensating for ones tiny gentleman sausage!

Thinking of getting one myself Question

The main reason for having a roof scoop on a rally car is to actually pressurise the interior of the car slightly. This small increase in pressure works wonders to keep out dust and sand from the rally stage.

Others do it for the rally slag look.

Apparently Some mid engined race cars use them to feed cool air into the cabin for comfort.
