This is the all new Gulfstream G700 private business jet.

Gulfstream announced its new flagship, the G700, showing a video of the aircraft taxiing under its own power in Savannah. It should fly 7,500 nmi/13,890 km at Mach 0.85 or 6,400 nmi/11,853 km at Mach 0.90. Its longer cabin can accommodate up to five areas and has 20 windows.

It is powered by Rolls-Royce Pearl 700 engines and has new winglets. Customer deliveries should start in 2022. 

The $75 million jet is a 10 ft (3.0 m) stretch of the G650.The aircraft completed its first flight on February 14, 2020.

The Gulfstream G700 delivers the most spacious, innovative and flexible cabin in the industry, plus all-new, high-thrust Rolls-Royce engines and the award-winning Symmetry Flight Deck.

The G700 should share its fly-by-wire cockpit with the G500/G600: active control sidesticks and Honeywell Primus Epic flight deck with synthetic and enhanced vision systems for a common type rating.

The jet is 110 ft (33.5 m) long, about 3 m longer than the G650ER and about 0.98 ft (0.3 m) shorter than the competing Bombardier Global 7500.

Its main cabin is 57 ft (17.4 m) long, 6.2 ft (1.9 m) high and 8.2 ft (2.5 m) wide; 0.8m longer, 0.1 m wider and a fraction taller than the 7500’s cabin. It should carry 19 seated passengers or sleep 10. It will have a MTOW of 107,600 lb (48,800 kg) and the 18,250 lbf (81.2 kN) turbofans should burn 2-3% less fuel than the G650’s R-R BR725s. The aircraft should take off from a 1,905 m runway at MTOW and land in 762 m at a typical landing weight.

Gulfstream hit paydirt with initial fleet orders valued at nearly $2 billion from Qatar Executive and Flexjet for the new G700 flagship unveiled on Monday evening at the NBAA-BACE static display at Las Vegas Henderson Executive Airport.
The Qatar Executive charter arm of Qatar Airways is taking 10 G700s worth $750 million at list price, with Qatar also having the honor of being the G700 launch customer. 

Flexjet, the first North America G700 fleet customer for the new Gulfstream, which placed a firm order for 16 G700s worth $1.2 billion at list price. It already operates G650ERs, G500s, and G450s, and was North America launch customer for the G500. Flexjet plans to make the G700 available for its Red Label service, which includes dedicated crews and other perks.
