The engine

With the size and power of these cars, I genuinely thought these run off a vacuum cleaner motor!
is it when you turn the ignition on or just start the car? As am guessing its the fuel pump priming which is normal.

Is it the fuel pump
When I get noises like that in my car, I usually just ask my wife to get out.

Rear engine

Doesn't make it sound any less of a vacuum cleaner

Have you just bought the car? If not has it just started happening? Is the noise permanent or does it stop after a while?
Is this the new Fortwo or the old one?
