Are you so filthy rich that you can’t stand driving in a car like the rest of the commoners around you? That’s understandable. Let the peasants suffer through traffic jams and pollution while you soar to your destination in nothing but blue skies, safe within the cockpit of the Cobalt Co50 Valkyrie personal aircraft.

Cobalt’s inaugural model offers a top speed of 299 mph, making it the fastest production-model single-engine piston plane you can buy. The compact plane can seat five people, and even offers storage space for luggage like golf clubs or skis.

The canard and forewing design reduces the likelihood of stalls, and the engine placement in the rear reduces cabin noise. So you are free to sip champagne while at the controls and laugh hysterically at the peons below. Actually no, drinking and flying don’t mix.

The introductory price for the Cobalt Valkyrie is about $700,000(USD), so you may have to go without caviar this week.
