Those are all the options that was included in my 451? Doesn't say anything about a Turbo? Regarding engine type.

VCotta does your Fortwo run pretty strong and get good gas mileage? I have always wanted a turbo for mine but just haven't had the extra money to do so. I have read that some turbos have a bit of lag before it kicks in and sets you back in the seat. Just curious. Thanks. DCO

Or, she (a real estate agent, 64 y.o. @ original purchase) was selling and you were "buying."

What PROOF POSITIVE did she provide that this rare MY08 451 was equipped with a factory TURBO???

I’m pretty sure OP sees a cone filter, no turbo. Pics or it didn’t happen.
