There are a couple of options that you can go down to get a coupe back on the vx. There is the Thorney type mould created ones that occasionally come up for sale or you could DIY it. I know tommobot on here has done it (he is midlands based) and can help/steer you clear of doing it unless you are a bit handy. The easiest way is to look at the eltech one. It's not the same style (exige) coupe but will achieve similar.

The set on the white speedster was from badster Sweden, who no longer makes them.

Unless you are committed and don't mind getting your hands dirty I wouldn't recomend the 'home brew'.. 
 
The eltech one looks pretty tasty, and also I believe there based in Italy...

Search on Ebay for the seller of a “vx220 fibreglass vented engine cover”. He sells a coupe shaped rear cover panel and hardtop with the big centre vent...

@tommobot ...idk how modify my post anyway i say here the continue for post #7 anyway i think can be fixed because now you need a spoiler exige s1 o s2 idk... "if you have" you can try to put spoiler exige s2 because now with your s1 engine cover will not be air(empty) from spoiler and bonnet and i think can be seen realy good ... i seen a lot of photos on web ... you cant buy and put the spoiler without modifications because the angle where spoiler is positionated on exige its different (maybe the hight too)...  its the reason why looks strange and empty on speedsters

That was my first attempt years ago, which in hindight was rubbish! It was basically another roof, cut to size and placed over the top of the buttresses. 

 

Also, visually it finished far to far forward in my eyes and made the rear look flat and like a flat-bed pickup truck.

 

The exige S1 bootlid with the purple paint may not be to everyones taste, but as a flowing line from the bottom of the windscreen to the spoiler on the back it cant be beaten to my eyes!   :wub:

Does someone have a food complete 3d scan of the car?

 

I´d like to make a nice designed engine cover similar to this.
