I would use black waterboard for this application. It bends easily and would more than hold up. Also: ABS and PVC foamboard (1/8" thick) will bend and form nicely if heat is applied to them. (Black waterboard is far less expensive, though.) Make sure the bend, (or curve, whatever you want to call it) is more severe than the curve of the trunk lid, so that when the panel is attached it spreads out, not curves in and gets wrinkled up. (Is that last sentence as clear as mud? Sorry.)
Good luck.
