The Ultimate ‘Gate Guardian’ - Mirage V
The 6,144kg twin-seater made its first operational flight on 11 March 1971 and has a top speed of Mach 2.3. Which is just the thing for long-distance reconnaissance or training missions, with a little light counter-insurgency work thrown in for good measure.
The Dassault-built example to be offered by Artcurial at its forthcoming 8 February sale won’t be relying on its SNECMA ATAR (with afterburner) turbojet to make its way to 32 Acacia Gardens. As a static object only, it will arrive at your door on the back of a low-loader.
Estimate: 90,000 to 100,000 euros.
