Luxury Mercedes-Benz EC145 Helicopter Looks Good Enough To Live In

It's the ultimate height in personal travel, inspired by Mercedes-Benz's R-Class car series. Unlike their sportscars though, this helicopter can carry eight people in style and has a TV, fridge and requisite cup holders.

It's got wooden floors but the seats can be upholstered in custom shades—or even your family's coat of arms, I'm guessing. For something so airborne it's surprising there's even room for storing bikes and golf clubs in the tail, or maybe even an inflatable dinghy should the desire for a paddle overcome you.

Available at the tail-end of 2011, there's no word on price just yet—which is just as well. I don't want to be giving anyone a heart attack. [Luxury Launches]
