What a *&#@!

I really hope this projects bursts back to life. If I could find an affordable clear Exige hatch, it could change my future Lotus buying plans!

MT-Draco is a pretty obscure Japanese aftermarket company making CFRP parts. Their most interesting product is this carbon/polycarb Exige hatch that is very F430-ish. Not much information is out there on it or even decently sized photos. My understanding is the company made a small batch and that's it and actually due to rising carbon prices they have stopped making it. Just as well though since it costs over $5k USD

But anyway, I figured I would share the cool pictures I found of it with yall





















Thanks for your comment.
Front rip spoiler & front access panel is still available.
