Christmas might be over but jet-set  celebrities and high-flying executives can order the ultimate new toy – a  private supersonic jet.

The aircraft claims to be the  ‘first supersonic business jet‘ and promises to cut flight times in half so that  busy billionaires will be able to travel from New York to London in just three  hours. However, such convenience and speed comes at  a price, as the jet will cost between $60million and $80million (£36.3million  and £48.4million).Created by a team of Boston-based engineers, the  Spike Aerospace S-512 aims to be the ultimate business aircraft that can reach Mach 1.6 with a top speed of  1,100mph.
The engineers, who have previously worked for  aerospace giants such as Airbus, Gulfstream and Bombardier, have spent the past  two years designing the luxury aircraft and believe the jet will be capable of  flying between New York and London in three hours.

LA to Tokyo will take just five hours and  London to Mumbai, four hours, according to the firm.
