All I Want For Christmas: Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane

Need a last minute gift idea? How about wings for a world-class wayfarer.


What:


Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane


Who:


For the most stylish of jetsetters


Why:


Trying to buy for a special someone who already has everything? Is – ahem – flying under the radar quite literally the antithesis of their modus operandi? Then why not seriously treat them this Christmas with the exquisite rose gold Valkyrie-X Private Plane by Cobalt.


Available exclusively as part of Neiman Marcus’ 90th anniversary over-the-top fantasy gift guide, the Valkyrie-X is inspired by classic fighter jets and crafted entirely from shiny carbon composite with a sleek chrome finish.


Not only is it the most dapper design in the sky, the plane’s interior is equally swish, sporting matching rose gold flight controls and hand-stitched leather seats clad in custom NM neutrals. There’s enough space for a pilot, three passengers and luggage, plus this high flier is also fitted with the largest one-piece glass canopy in the world, which means some mind-boggling panoramas as you soar above the clouds.


Need to jet, set, go fast? Well, fret not, the Valkyrie-X is one of the speediest piston aircraft available, capable of whisking passengers to their desti at a bun-clenching 230 miles per hour.


And while the $1.5million price tag may melt your Amex, rest assured $200,000 of the purchase price will be donated to The Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation which supports youths in communities across the US.


Pre-order the Cobalt Valkyrie-X Private Plane from Neiman Marcus before it launches in 2017.
