Insanely Rich People Get Insanely Awesome, Shiny Flying Toy

You saw the 3D images more than a year ago, and here's the real thing: The all new, amazing, and near-supersonic Gulfstream 650. The cockpit with four 14-inch multifunction LCDs with enhanced vision display looks even cooler than the renderings.

The new Gulfstream 650 can take you anywhere in a 12,800 kilometre radius at Mach 0.925 and 12,500 metres. It is powered by dual Dual Rolls-Roice BR725 engines, which makes it 33% quieter, emitting 5% fewer NOx emissions and 10% less smoke than its predecessor.

The G650 also has the latest in electronics, with fly-by-wire controls and large multifunction screens that can combine real time video, night vision, and 3D renderings for military-grade visuals. Yes, that splash you heard was Larry Ellison, Al Gore and John Travolta getting wet. [Flight Global with photos by Jon Ostrower]
