    Top Gear Set Seats

    This is my first post because I can't find the answer anywhere else. I'm looking to make a unique sofa from an auto seat. I love the green leather seat from the Top Gear set. It's huge and looks cool. Does ANYONE know what make/model it came from?

    Thanks!

    Really, a Silver Shadow?

    (For what it's worth, the original ones -- S1-9 -- were from a Vauxhall Senator.)

    The seats get mentioned in the uncut interview with Jay Kay I think, just incase someone still has doubts.

    They are also mentioned in the episode when they explain that the top gear storage had burned down.

    Write to "I have a vauxhall senator and i drive everywhere standing up".

    I know one is out of a Grand Cherokee...but it must be the US version. Rolls sounds familiar though.

    The look to be about 40 years old. Could they be from a RR Silver Shadow?

    They look like they were from a RR Silver Shadow from a shallow grave...
