When it comes to putting items upon your Christmas Wish list, a private plane probably does not top many of yours. But for the elite few who can ask Santa for such a gift, this special Rose Gold coated edition of the Cobalt Valkyrie, The Cobalt Valkyrie X, priced at almost 2.5 times the price of the standard one at $595,000, is the epitome.
Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane in Rose Gold
The Cobalt Valkyrie, which debuted last month, is targeted for availability in 2017 and will be one of the fastest piston aircrafts in the world. The brainchild of aerospace engineer and Cobalt founder David Loury, the 4 passenger plane has a shape that is raindrop sleek and a 350-horsepower engine, reaching speeds of up to 230 miles per hour with a range of up to 1,150 ground miles.
This “X” version has been exclusively created for Neiman Marcus’ Fantasy Gifts of 2016. It has a rose-gold coating and unique interior color scheme.
This is a premium way to fly: The main structure is high-performance carbon composite, the flight controls feature full pushrod-bellcrank precision mechanisms, and the retractable landing gear is machined from solid alloys of aluminum and stainless steel. The private-club interior boasts hand-stitched leather seats and suede-like Alcantara, plus plentiful storage for golf clubs, skis, and suitcases. The shapely Valkyrie-X, inspired by classic fighter jets and built entirely in California, will also have the largest one-piece canopy in the world, providing breathtaking vistas for pilot and passengers alike.
Not only does the Cobalt Valkyrie-X wear an exclusive rose-gold coating, but inside, the flight controls are rose gold plated, too. The seats are upholstered in cream-colored leather and the plane boasts sumptuous beige-and-taupe headlining and anthracite carpets.
It comes loaded with options and 24 /7 technical support in the United States for two years. It also comes with one other thing: the luster of luxury — not only of indulgence and privacy, but of saving time, too. (The most precious commodity of all, as you well know.)
The Top 5 Features: What Makes the Valkyrie Different?
Cobalt Valkyrie’s top features include:
1. Built for speed.
The Valkyrie is the fastest private aircraft in its class with the ability to travel up to 260 knots. In contrast, other single engine piston aircraft usually tap out at 242 knots. Cobalt’s Valkyrie is the fastest single engine piston plane in its category.
2. Super safe.
The Valkyrie is a canard aircraft, equipped with a forewing to prevent the plane from stalling in the air. This provides a tremendous peace of mind to pilots and ensures the industry’s safest landings and takeoffs. Cobalt promotes the highest standards of safety in the industry. An onboard parachute is also provided for an additional sense of security.
3. Modern, elegant design and craftsmanship.
Inspired by classic fighter jets with clean lines and premium finishes, the Valkyrie impresses with understated elegance. The exterior comes in a range of custom finishes including dark colors, typically harder on composites. The interior features premium leather seats, hand stitched by former Hermès craftsmen. The dashboard design is equally impressive with only one on/off switch and a tasteful place for your iPad. Cobalt will exclusively manufacture the Valkyrie in California to ensure quality standards and fast delivery to early buyers.
4. Amazing visibility.
Pilots flying Cobalt’s Valkyrie will appreciate the beautiful, expansive visibility above and below. Valkyrie has the largest one-piece canopy in the world and unrivaled visibility with a 320-degree view.
5. Luxurious comfort.
The Valkyrie comfortably seats five people, including the pilot, with ample storage for golf clubs, skis and suitcases. The Valkyrie’s propulsion engine is located in the rear of the plane, allowing for a quiet, comfortable cabin
