Hi, you are NOT alone here albeit it is me who would like to have them on my 2003/4 model VV.I recently purchased a 2002 Vantage Volante. My wife looked at it ans said "No cup holders".
I know, it's an American thing but life will be better if I can install cup holders. Has anyone been able to do this? The dealer could not help.
Hi Wayne, yes I have looked at this type before but I always felt it looked different on the front leading cup holder edge profile which is why I did not get one but I just looked at that Marlow cars example and it looks like a great fit albeit the camera man did not hold it there long enough for me to study it properly.Brendan, I fixed the cup holder problem by using a 1998 to 2003 Jaguar XJ8/XJR centre console lid that has a retractable pair of cupholders built in.
You loose the ability to lock the storage compartment and its a bit higher , but other than that its a pretty good fit.
No photo of mine yet, but this nice DB7 VV that has some AM works service options has one that is obviously the Jag one also.
I had to dye the leather on mine to get a colour match to the interior, but you could just buy a black one as some of the XJR interiors were that colour
AM should have just made a box and shelf in the back of the DB7's instead as its a total waste of valuable space and leather trim!!!!The children would have to be bilateral amputees. The car would have been so much nicer if they had given up on the idea of rear seats. I had a 928 Porsche. I got four adults in it.
Man toys Wayne, not kids toys!!!!! LOLMy kids rode in the back of the DB7 once,I had to have the drivers seat set so far forwards almost couldn't operate the clutch properly as my legs were wedged up under the dash.
I remember riding in the back of my uncles Triumph TR4A as a kid which was a weird combination of fun and very bad leg cramp.
Bad for drivers and rear passengers I guess.
You are quite right albeit I would not wish to pull the short straw and be the poor sod in the rear especially in a coupe model.It is possible to fit an adult in the back seats of the DB7 provided they are not particularly tall, the person in the front seat is also not tall, and they don't want to be comfortable. Even someone of moderate height will have their head pressed against the headlining looking like Herman Munster
