The Gulfstream is very famous, especially among luxury aficionados. But no empire lasts forever, and this particular one’s menace comes from Bombardier, a Canadian aviation company.
They are planning on introducing the world’s most expensive business jet in two versions. If a Gulfstream G650 for instance costs $58.5 million, a Global 7000 and 8000 (both borrowing elements from the 5000 and the Global Express XRS) will set you back $65 million. In addition to this, the two jets form Bombardier will boast impressive ranges: 7,300 nmi and 7,900 nmi at Mach 0.85 for the 7000, and the 8000 respectively.
Boasting increased fuel efficiency, new wings and a lot of luxury features, the two aircrafts will make perfect acquisitions for wealthy people around the globe. With the largest cabin ever seen in a business jet, the 7000 will be able to fly from New York to Dubai, London to Singapore, or Beijing to Washington without a stop while carrying 10 passengers. The 8000 has a longer range and it will be able to cover long distances like Hong Kong-New York, Sydney-Los Angeles, or Mumbai-New York with 8 people on board.
The jets will only be available starting with 2016, when the 7000 will enter service. The 8000 will need one more year to get ready to fly.
