    perhaps the holes contain cameras?
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for others.
    It is the same when you are stupid.

    I'm guessing aerodynamics, less drag. Allow air to pass through the mirror assembly instead of having to go around it.

    That looks downright Menacing. My guess was that the air scopes are intakes to pump air into the cabin to cool the driver.

    Exactly. They are wind-channeling mirrors that lower the drag coefficient somewhat. Pretty neat concept and nice looking.
    Nothing to do with air in the cabin.
