I never understood why people are willing to pay so much extra cash for hp that is simply not capable of being utilized on public roads - especially in an SUV. 90% of them would kill themselves if they tried. Then again, it seems like everyone you counter that owns one is always that statistical exception that "takes my car to the track".
I think the answer is, why not, if you can afford it, why not.
It's like buying a 20k$ watch, a 10k$ chair or a pair of 300$ jeans etc. etc., when they do the exact same thing, as a timex, a chair from ikea and a pair of walmart jeans, it's a matter of interest, some people see it as a matter of function and others see it, as a piece of design they like to look at and it makes them happy and most of the time it makes the world a better looking place, which is heavily underrated and if seeing a super car rolling by doesn't make you smile, I don't know what will.
