Having your own private jet is one thing. Having one complete with a rose gold finish both inside and out is quite another thing entirely. That, however, is just what Neiman Marcus, the much-lauded US-based luxury brand, currently has on offer. The four-seater plane in question is a Cobalt Valkyrie-X model. Currently valued at some US$1.5 million (HK$11.64 million), it is one of the fastest propeller-driven aircraft in the world with a top speed of 370 kilometres per hour and a range of up to 1,850 kilometres without refuelling.

Reassuringly, it comes in a canard configuration, complete with a forewing, a design said to reduce any incidence of stalling. Wholly manufactured in California, the jet also features hand-stitched leather seats and matching rose gold controls. The retractable landing gear, though, is machined in sturdy, high-performance alloys. The dashboard design is equally impressive, with one easy-to-use on/off switch and even a place holder for an iPad – how very thoughtful.

While first models aren’t due to go on sale until next year, the company’s order book is said to be filling up fast.
