Gulfstream G650 Jet on Billionaire Wish Lists


The World's Biggest, Fastest, Priciest Private Jet Play

Despite its $65 million price, Gulfstream Aerospace’s top-of-the-line G650 is the most sought-after private jet on the market. Built for international travel, it can fly 7,000 miles nonstop at close to the speed of sound. In October it set a speed record for an aircraft of its class, circling the globe in 41 hours, 7 minutes. Good luck getting your hands on one: Although private jet sales overall have been slow since the economic meltdown, the G650 is back-ordered until 2017.
