The stripes you see above the front splitter and on the door and the mustache on the rear are the only decals (not including the 260 logos).

What you see on the roof, the mohawk, front panels, wing, side scoops are all exposed carbon fiber of the actual part itself. Looking at the roof and the rear hatch from underneath also shows raw carbon fiber in addition to the interior pieces.

The seats for instance are done in house and are so complicated they have inhibited production up to this point. They are being hand made and are very time consuming. I don't know if all the other carbon fiber is being done in house at Hethel, but if so - this is quite an undertaking for Lotus. There seems to be a lot of time put into these cars.

Does the cup 260 have the hardtop bracket like the Exige S? (The one pulling the center section down from inside the car.)

no

This is the wrong end - but here is the underneath of my roof as seen from the drivers seat...

And here is an underneath view of the hatch - which doesn't have a strut like other Exige's - it has a tiny prop rod that hold it up. The hatch does look kind of rough in some patches and mine seems to have markings on it - I have no idea what they mean.



Also - on a side note, my wing doesn't flop like my 06 or 07 did. It is solid and stays in place. I don't know if it the way it is attached, the hatch, the carbon fiber or what - but it does not flop around. :shrug:
