The only way that apparatus could be "functional" is if those two vent panels on the underside of the roof (inside the car) are actually connected to those two shop vac hoses leading to the engine bay. It is beyond comprehension.

I can't even figure out what that thing on the hood is supposed to be. A scoop? For what purpose? There's already a buildup of air pressure being created behind the radiator while traveling forward.

The hood scoop looked familiar to me but I couldnt figure out what it was. It really looks like the auto pool filler thingie. It hangs over the pool edge and has a float valve. That lambo looks good hes done the stretch, look at the engine room.

What makes that roof scoop "totally unique" is that there's actually no scoop on that apparatus. Maybe it's connected to the one on the hood.

The "Roof Scoop" is a dead ringer for one of the little robots on the movie "Silent Running" Dewey, I believe its name was. Bruce Dern would love that scoop!

The "roof scoop" is actually the car's heater. You notice it has no opening to scoop air into the engine bay, but it does line up perfectly with the round thing in the roof in the interior shot. I think that is a vent. There is a blower motor in there somewhere that pushes the heat from the engine forward into the passenger compartment. You can control the speed of the blower, but the only way to control the temperature is to run the engine hotter or cooler with gear selectino and then further balance it out by rolling the windows down when you're getting cooked.

The new owner better watch out for an exhaust leak or residual exhaust fumes. Carbon Monoxide is odorless and extremely lethal.

If the roof thing is connected to the cabin... Then what's under the tubes?
Because exhaust parts leaking can very easy poison the driver.

No, no, no... you've got it all backwards. The airflow goes the other way. It's a car custom-designed for smokers (of any substance). Their obnoxious fumes get drawn into the underside roof vent, transported through those flex hoses to the engine's intake, and thusly burned. It's a brilliant system I tell ya... brilliant!

You're right! After looking at it a second time this makes perfect sense. Any time you get randomly stopped in states where potentially less than legal substances are being utilized in the car the officer will never know because the smoke and smells will be getting sucked into the engine bay! Even better if the car has an exhaust leak so the smell of exhaust covers any smells as he approaches the car from the rear.
