The Cessna Citation X (as in ten) is, now that Concorde has been retired, the world's fastest civilian aircraft.
Thanks to highly swept wings, it's Rolls-Royce engines can power it to cruise at Mach 0.92 - just a hair's breadth beneath the speed of sound.
At launch, Cessna claimed it to be some 100 knots faster than any other mid-sized private jet, meaning an otherwise four-hour journey could be completed in not much over three.
The stand-up cabin is typically configured to seat eight and, naturally, includes a fully enclosed lavatory.
Famous owners include golf professional Andy Palmer, a serial Citation customer, who took delivery of the first customer aircraft in 1996.
