It looks silly to drive $150k car around with it even at the race track.

On the original street version of the NSX-R GT The Ram air intake is a cosmetic piece. It is not functional whereas the actual race car was functional. The fake scoop was done to meet homogulation regulations.

Better in appearance usually means a compromise in performance. Spoon is a no-compromise company...the scoop (when functional) is a performance enhancer. I'm confident when I say Spoon probably tried other "sleeker" designs, but discovered the best performance enhancement with this scoop.
