Top Five Most Expensive Private Jets
So you’ve got a Bugatti Veyron. Big deal. OK, it IS a big deal. The Veyron, after all, is currently the fastest, most powerful, and most expensive exotic car in the world. But is owning one anywhere near the level of having a Gulfstream G550 at your beck and call parked in a hangar somewhere, ready to take off at a moment’s notice? Not a chance.
Private jets are probably some of the most expensive toys available to man. Naturally, only the very rich can even think about getting one. But even among private jets, there is a group of ultra-expensive aircraft that you can own only if you treat $40 million or more as nothing more than spare change. You know, like British gazillionaire Philip Green, who owns a Gulfstream G550, and Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich, owner of a couple of Boeing jets, do.
The price tags on the five most expensive private jets listed below may be a bit too much, but the truth is, the quality and performance of these aircraft deserve that kind of a price range—and more. Spacious, luxurious, super fast, and becoming increasingly longer-ranged, these jets are exactly the stuff dreams are made of. But getting them will remain a dream for me, unless I build a website that will become the next YouTube or something.
