Tiguan SE R-Line Black RiNo, named after Denver, Colorado’s Riverside North arts district, the concept is inspired by the city’s outdoorsy, adventurous spirit. Built by Jamie Orr, of Orchid Euro. Inspired by cycling was made Tiguan Black RhiNo.
“Designed to function in difficult terrain, but it works well in any environment — that is the Tiguan,” said Orr. The original idea of an adventure car.
It has a bike carrier at the back of the car, and in the trunk there is space for helmets, for mountain biking.
There’s also an air compressor included inside to help bikers inflate their tires and an LED lightbar should help make repairs easier. The Tiguan’s shift knob and boot have been replaced with Black Forest Industries ones.
Speaking of less cycling-focused modifications, Orr swapped in 20-inch Rotiform OZR rims that are wrapped in Continental SpotContact 5P tires. The Tiguan has also been lowered with Solo-Werks coilovers.
The factory spoiler has been extended, too. The exhaust system has been replaced with custom Borla stainless steel pipes with black tips to match the rest of the vehicle.
All of which should help get you moving in a hurry. But if you want to slow down, 6-piston Big Brake Kit calipers now grab Forge Motorsport USA rotors.
“I wanted to highlight the strong body lines and design cues of the Tiguan,” said Orr. This car can go to the grocery store, but also to the mountains and hills.
