"Leather Engine Cover"

It somewhat made sense in the i8... in a front engine car like the 7 series I don't get it.

So I open the hood and all I see is a big panel covered in leather covering the engine bay? There's not even any storage capability. The hood is a cover in a sense... and the engine already has a plastic cover over most of it... and there's an option for a 3rd cover now! Hallelujah!
