This past week, I was in Zurich enjoying a little bit of time off and some german beer. Cruising on Zurich's streets, as expected, I kept seeing tons of exotic and luxury cars, anything from Maseratti, Ferarri to BMW and Mercedes, but what really caught my attention were the BMW 5 Series that were being used by the Swiss policemen. 

I was a little bit affraid of taking photos of them and their 5 Series, but to my surprise, they were quite friendly and agreed to let me snap some photos for my "american fellows". I find it really interesting that the Switzerland spends that much money on a police car in compare to us here in the States, but seeing how small Switzerland really is, the general costs for the police equipement has to be significant lower.

Many luxury cars in Europe are debadged and these BMW 5 Series models made no exception, so I can't really tell what engine they had under the hood.

Anyway, I thought you would find this amusing and interesting in the same time :)
