If you’re the type who insists that your rose gold smartphone matches your wardrobe, then Neiman Marcus has got the perfect accessory for you: a $1.5 million three-seater private plane featuring a rose gold finish—inside and out.

The Cobalt Valkyrie-X doesn’t actually debut until 2017, at which time it will be one of the fastest planes in the world that still relies on a propellor instead of a jet engine. With a top speed of 230 miles per hour and a range of up to 1,150 miles, it can either be the perfect commuter, or a fun way to hop around the country on weekends.

With hand-stitched leather seats, matching rose gold flight controls, and enough trunk space for luggage and a set of skis, you never have to deal with finding a good seat on a commercial airliner when you head off on vacation. And your $1.5 million investment includes two years of round-the-clock technical support, since it’s not like you can just take it into the shop if you have a problem.

DISCUSSION

Please note that this is very far from an “everyman” aircraft, despite being sold at retail by NM. To fly this plane you would need at least an FAA Private Pilot license, with complex and high-performance endorsements. As a practical matter, you’d need at least 200 flight hours of experience to fly this plane safely and competently.

Fun fact: this is not the first plane to be marketed by a department store. The 1946 Ercoupe was heavily advertised and sold by Macy’s.
