Most of the pics are from Zurich. A couple of them are from Interlaken and Lucerne. Zurich is full of Bentleys, Porches, Audis etc. In fact I can confidently say that every 10th. car in Zurich is likely to be a Porche or an Audi or a Merc.

Imagine my shock when I saw a couple of Porche Cayennes as taxis in the city
