You'd probably have to have something custom made. Maybe using the underfloor area in the back. Well, for anything long.

See I was thinking something along these lines.

A regular bottle of wine *would* fit in the cupholder in my E53. It did get in the way of shifting though.

'1803, what exactly are you trying to stash, and to what purpose? The area below the trunk floor should lend itself to most longarms that can be broken down, whether an AR or a double shotgun. They would be out of sight, tho' not secured beyond the normal doorlocks.
I have carry permits that are good in most states; when travelling thru' places like the People's Republic of Maryland, by law, my pistol has to be stored empty and separate from the ammo. Again, the area under the trunkfloor serves well; I use a lockbox secured with aircraft cable. A determined thief could cut the cable or force the box, but there's a limit on how much security there is room for.
So tell us some more. Long guns or handguns? Do they have to be secured, or just concealed? Or perhaps just stored so they don't whack each other?

i aint trying to conceal or stash anything. i just thought it would be kinda cool to have one for when i go out target shooting in the country. its a remington 870. and at this point i might just get a good case and put it in the trunk. i was really hoping some one would know something. but i guess not. lol. then again this is a bmw forum not a chevy forum haha.

As I recall, 870s takedown by unscrewing the magazine cap; you can then pull the barrel out of the receiver.
Depending on how long the mag tube is on your shotgun, you might be able to do the 'under the floor' thing.
Now if what you want is a rack for 'cool' points, that's another question altogether.
BTW, I could never hit anything flying with an 870....

In a more serious vein, it is frequently illegal, or simply a really bad idea, to display a weapon in a vehicle. Even the time honored gun rack in the back window of pickup trucks has become somewhat rare here in Westsylvania, in what is arguably hunting country. If the OP can still find such things, they potentially could be screwed to the backs of the second row of seats, tho' I suspect an assembled 870 would be too long.
For the OP, have a hard look at some of the 'under the floor' suggestion I gave you, or perhaps a softside shotgun case that isn't shaped like a gun (there are some rectangular ones available that don't especially look like what they are); you can decide if you want the gun to remain assembled or taken down. The takedown cases have two compartments but are shorter; they keep the components from marking each other. Some areas require weapons be cased and empty for transport.
A visible weapon has some potential for complicating any number of situations, and it also encourages theft, tho' behind the second row of seats is at least out of sight with the hatch cover in place. I'm a great supporter of the Second Amendment, but keeping a low profile is not without merit.
