It just dumps cooler, outside air into the engine compartment. Mostly it just looks cool.

It's a cooler that looks very cool :), it'd be a hellova mod for the fed elise, I wonder if we could Rube Goldberg one. I've heard that it greatly reduces rear vis.

Now reduced rear visibility is the cool thing? That's it. I'm giving up my spot to go buy a fullsize panel van. :D

never implied it was cool, I brought it up as a downside, however, admittedly the roof scoop is cool.

The scoop on the Exige is taken from the Motorsport Elise since the Exige (the S1) is the road-going version of the Motorsport car.

On the Motorsport car the oil cooler was actually mounted where the roof scoop vented.

The Exige uses this scoop to cool the engine bay as noted above. The solid boot lid doesn't allow cooling like the Motorsport car and the street Elise since they both have vented boot covers.
