Last time I was in Europe I was told there was a difference in horsepower between the 2.0T engines put in the VWs, signified by the color of the T. I have never seen a red T 2.7T in the US. I would bet the owner either painted it or swapped out the letter with a red one. I have seen an awful lot of 2.7Ts over the past 8 years that I owned mine! It got your attention, didn't it?
