the front body post you see is the 5th body post usualy mounted near the windshield. prevents body compression during high speeds... alot of Japanese drivers do this..

But, i can see the logic.

It will also keep the front wheel wells from cracking from when the car lands upside down. All that flexing cracks the upper middle part of them.
