This rose-gold airplane is going on many people's fantasy Christmas list

It’s almost that time of year when you break out the Christmas list and write to Santa for all the things you want but can’t possibly afford. Here’s another present to add to your fantasy list; your very own rose-gold airplane.

The Cobalt Valkyrie-X is due to be released in 2017 and will become one of the fastest piston aircrafts in the world. The private plane can travel at up to 230 miles per hour and carry four people in total.

The design is based on classic fighter jets with a huge one piece canopy that allows both pilots and passengers to experience the best view possible. In addition to the rose-gold airplane exterior, all the flight controls are plated with rose-gold as well and the interior is fitted out with carpets and leather seats. You also get two years 24/7 technical support.

The standard Valkyrie starts at $595,000 but you’ll have to be extra good to find the rose-gold airplane under your tree as it retails at $1.5 million. If it is within your grasp for the holiday season, you don’t need to feel too guilty about splurging out. With every purchase, Neiman Marcus will donate $200,000 to the Heart of Neiman Marcus Foundation to help young people in communities all over the USA.

The luxury department store teamed up with Cobalt to bring you the Valkyrie-X as part of their over-the-top fantasy gift list for 2016. Other gifts you can daydream about include a week at luxurious old English estates and even a walk-on part on the hit Broadway show Waitress.
