The World's Fastest Private Jet Gulfstream G650 is in Short Supply



The world's fastest, biggest and probably the most luxury business jet, Gulfstream G650 becomes more than just a perfect gear for fast transportation.  It is already owned by some of the world's biggest corporations such as Exxon Mobil, Walmart and Qualcomm.

So how fast can G650 fly?  It can get pretty close to mach 1 (speed of sound) or about 630 mph.  G650 is also the biggest and has one of the longest range of any business jets.  Such a spec is enough to put this this fantastic jet on a top wanted list of world's richest businessmen.

When Ed Dahlberg put his G650 up for a sale, he got 40 phone calls in a day even with his asking price being over the sticker price he paid for.  He expect to sell it for around $75 million which is more than $10 million more than the sticker price ($64.5 million)


Large, luxury aircraft are the bright spot in a $21 billion private-jet market recovering unevenly from the 2008-09 financial crisis. While orders remain weak for small, personal models such as the Mustang from Textron Inc.’s Cessna, corporate fleet managers and billionaires are shopping again for big planes able to make transoceanic routes.

Propelled by Rolls-Royce engines tucked on either side of the rear of the fuselage, the G650 can carry as many as 18 people. To ease jet lag, the cabin air pressure is kept higher than on typical airplanes.

The G650 is designed to provide the most comfortable and productive cabin environment. A quieter cabin provides a more comfortable environment for conversation or relaxation and the aircraft’s advanced environmental control system features quieter air distribution and independently vented lavatories. 

The G650’s new cabin windows, measuring 28 inches by 20.5 inches, are the largest in the industry, providing for even more natural light and visually expanding the aircraft’s already spacious interior.

A few weeks ago, G650 also became available for charter in select locations in Europe.  For instance, a ride from London to Dubai will set you back £99,000.  That's more than what most brand new luxury cars cost.

More than 50 G650 has been delivered so far, and the industry experts believe that there won’t be a competitor that can match its prestige, comfort, performance and features until 2016 in which Bombardier Inc.’s Global 7000 is expected to arrive.
