    That cover was an optional extra.
    I don't think many people use it because you have to first remove it from its storage in the boot, then take roof off, then manually put the cover in place.
    And if you want to put the roof up again, you have to manually remove the cover then put roof up before it can go in its bag in the boot.
    My Copen didn't come with it but It sounds like a bit of a hassle so I'm not sure if it is used often by people who have one.

    Here's some pictures I found online.
    The bag that stores it is located at the back of the boot, so accessing it when the roof is down is impossible.

    And when it's in place it locks to the little pegs across the top behind the roll bar.
    This means your Copen needs the mounting points to be able to install and store it, and copens that weren't optioned with this cover don't have those mounting points.

    It does look nice though, but maybe not worth the trouble

    Thanks for the trouble of looking, but your right looks very good.
