The World's First Supersonic Business Jet Will Replace Windows With Electronic Screens, Because Rich People

High rollers, this one's for you.

Introducing the Spike S-512 Supersonic Jet, a luxury new travel vehicle that will, according to a press release from Spike Aerospace, get passengers to their destinations in half the time it currently takes by breaking the sound barrier.

Besides being a totally baller way for you and up to 18 of your closest friends to get around, the jet will feature a windowless cabin to get rid of glare and the hassle of dealing with shades.

The sign of true wealth: being able to change the panoramic images displayed on the electronic walls of your personal aircraft.


Spike Aerospace claims it "can eliminate the structural issues with windows and reduce the aircraft weight," and that "the very smooth exterior skin will reduce the drag normally caused by having windows."

Personally I like to look out the windows when I fly but what do I know as a mere worker bee?


Ready to reserve your jet? Unfortunately that section of the website is still under construction but the jet is slated to cost $80 million and be available in December 2018.


If you do spring for a supersonic jet, don't try this trick in your new ride:

If money were no object, would you buy the Spike S-512 Supersonic Jet?
