The search function is your Friend, similar question is asked most weeks.

Insuring a UK car outside the UK is difficult, 1 Broker can do it.
Unless you have owned the car for 6 months before living here duty & VAT will be payable on import.
RHD is a bit of a pain, I did it for a year but was too much of a pain to register the car here.
Buying second hand is probably the best option, cars for sale & taking over leases are also a weekly event here.

Good luck

Approx 12% taxes on a new car plus headlight conversions etc. If the EXACT car has never been imported before it could be a major pain & expensive to import. If you owned the car before for 6 months before the start of your resident permit you got here it can be imported without much fuss + no taxes.

You may well get 20% discounts on new, Mercedes were offering that a few months ago

Taking over leases & a few cars are sold here.

Once it's on CH plates Swiss will insure, before they don't want to know or might with 100% loading.

www.autoscout24.ch is the main site

Then you have to register in CH straight away, your Swiss license is not even valid for foreign registered cars in CH. (Hopefully you have exchanged your license within 1 year)

Best info I can give you is to get the real deal (Vogue) and not the sport!
