Seen today (Zürich visit):

@thomas' swiss cousin
Z-1.jpg


Souped-up Pontiac Firebird. Soundtrack matched the looks and was on a crushing-rocks-with-a-industrial-press level. Holy cow! :oops:
Z-2.jpg


Ferrari 575 Superamerica
Z-4.jpg


McLaren somethingsomething (they all look the same to me)
Z-5.jpg


Fiat 126, trackday toy version
Z-6.jpg


Lincoln Continental, good luck finding a parking space for that in the city :LOL:
Z-7.jpg


Rolls-Royce Phantom I with financially matching plates. ZG plates with three digits start at 50'000.- bids (SFR is roughly 1:1 to USD)... imagine what those 2-digit plates can fetch...
Z-8.jpg


Here, have some Corvette beauteousness 🤗
Z-10.jpg


When a container and a rocket have a baby: Brabus 700 G63

Two Alfas, a 1750 GTV and a Spider, the pictures don’t show this very clearly, but both of them look a little rough round the edges, like they are driven daily:

Meanwhile, the Taycan is getting very popular. Aldo, cool that customers actually order these in colors.

^ The Alfa 1750 is such a mean and cool looking thing, and next to a Alfa Montreal and a Ferrari 308 the only vintage car I daydream about occasionally. 🤩

More from this week in Zürich. Sure, like London or Monaco, it's shooting fish in a barrel in regards to car spotting, but hey it is pleasing to my hunter-and-gatherer genes, so there it is:

Genuine? Probably not, as it had swiss plates:

And a typical reasonably priced Opel owner that can't be bothered to put matching hubcaps on their car. If you don't have four matching ones, at least make them match per side.

Finnish plates starting with D and W (and P, at least way back then) are typically used for trailers. Pretty interesting that the stale government authority that is Traficom allowed a car owner to buy a D plate. These are the same people that currently are issuing plates that read KUK which is swedish for "cock", and not the male bird kind. They're telling angry owners of brand new cars to basically pay for a custom plate or get lost.

Corvette C2:

A new-ish Camaro:

A Jaaaaag XJ

A (brown) Aston Martin V8 Vantage:
tempImageTOLVOX.jpg


Another Taycan, but this time with one of the more usual boring colors:
tempImagebccJZI.jpg


Later, I heard a familiar V8 sound, and was quick to grab a shot of this lovely 928:
tempImagerMAOLo.jpg


A brand new 992, these things look very low, wide, squat, and purposeful in real life:
tempImageHVOM8d.jpg


I also managed to find a surviving Austin 1300, one that the steel worms seems to have spared. Fittingly parked in front of two billboards from the Labour Party for the general election held yesterday:
