Elon Musk treats himself to a new private jet worth over $100 million

UPGRADE DAY

Billionaire Elon Musk continues to prove that he has no limits when he decides to treat himself to a new high-end private jet, a Gulfstream G700, for a value of US$78 million, or just over C$100 million, the Austinia news site revealed. 

With delivery scheduled for early 2023, the aircraft is expected to have “ the most spacious cabin in history” with a capacity of 19 people.

Delivery of the aircraft could however be delayed due to the final certification of this new jet, which will not is not yet approved by the Federal Aviation Administration.

According to “Fortune” magazine, the jet is large enough to accommodate five separate living areas, including a six-seat dining area and a bedroom with bathroom. It also has its own wifi system.

The plane also has circadian lighting that recreates sunrise and sunset to adapt passengers to changes in time zones.

The G700 also has a range of 7500 nautical miles without refueling, which means that it can go from New York to Tokyo without stopping.

This new device will therefore replace the 2015 Gulfstream G650 that the founder of Tesla and Space X currently owns.

And Elon Musk wouldn't be the only one shopping for a jet as the Gulfstream company took 81 orders in the last quarter of 2021 , a record for the manufacturer.
