The Supersonic business jet. Aerion AS2.

Business jets are the toys of millionaires and bonus of corporate executives. Business jets are used all around the world and are priced in range of $40-$65 million a piece. Believe it or not, this market is big and competitive. As of now there are 14 models alone from different manufactures for the customers to choose from. 

To add more spice, Aerion company is planning on putting a supersonic business jet by 2021. They are not alone; Airbus is there partner. 

The aircraft is now called AS2. Check out the video below:

After the Concorde era, all aviation enthusiasts have been waiting for another supersonic aircraft. 
I don't know how far they will take this. But to make a supersonic aircraft that cruise at Mach 1.6 and costs $100 million a piece is something remarkable. 

The technology used in the aircraft assures that all is not lost with supersonic travel.

I recommend you to check their website to get a feel of future. Don't forget to check the flight comparison mode in one of the pages. Here's the link :
