Elon Musk adds another plane to his collection

Although Elon Musk claims to live frugally, he owns quite a few planes. He said, “I mean, the only exception is the plane, but if I didn’t use the plane, I’d have fewer hours.” And he seems to have developed a certain crush on one model. In just the past two years, the richest man in the world has purchased two private jets, both Gulfstream G550s.

Tiger also owns the same plane that Musk bought. The Gulfstream G550 is powered by two Rolls-Royce BF710-C4-11 engines. The plane can travel 7,767 miles without interruption for fuel. The aircraft can reach a top speed of Mach 0.885 (680 mph). Gulfstream no longer manufactures the G550, even though the aircraft is one of their most successful models.

The plane is an absolute beast, and a new one costs nearly $62 million. One can get their hands on a used car for $14 million. Just buying the plane is not enough; It takes about $4.2 million to operate the plane for about 300 hours a year.
