JetLev R200

 This Fantasy Gift is sure to get your adrenalin levels soaring because this water-propelled jetpack can reach top speeds of 32 miles per hour and equips the buyer to soar to heights up to 30 feet in the air. The harness, weighing 30 pounds, lifts you into the air by means of hydro pressure and can power you to float around at an average speed of 30mph for four hours. The jetpack has a fuel capacity of 22 gallons and can be powered for four hours or 80 miles on a single tank of high-octane gasoline. Neiman Marcus describes it as “one part sci-fi, three parts British secret service agent and 100 percent pure adrenaline.” The entire package includes a jetpack, boat unit in Neiman Marcus Exclusive colour with graphics, hose/control cable assembly, jetpack stand, 2 helmet radios, remote throttle-control transmitter, CFI1 Pilot Certification training & safety course (which is mandatory before you take flight) and is priced at USD 99,500.
