Dealer in CT advertising Turbo-charged 2010

I just test drove a 2010 rx8 r3 which the dealership is advertising as turbo charged. The car is new and has no after market modifications, I checked the engine, could not see a turbo, however the salesman was adamant the car was turbocharged and they have in writing on the windshield in big letters, "Turbo." Is this possible???? I think they're looking to make a sucker out of someone and i'm tempted to notify Mazda USA.

Notify Mazda and tell the salesman he is a flipping idiot.

What I would do is buy it, and make them spend the money, R&D etc to turbo charge the damn thing.
