Embraer delivered the first Phenom 300E limited edition Duet aircraft resulting from its partnership with Porsche to an undisclosed customer.
This first aircraft of the total 10 to be built, was delivered to the Embraer Global Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida, and combines the standard Phenom 300 with the interior of the Porsche 911 Turbo S and its paint scheme.
The Phenom 300E aircraft is certified to be the fastest and longest-range single-pilot, and the Porsche 911 Turbo S car boasts a gold standard in production sports cars.
«We designed Duet in collaboration with Porsche to present the perfect travel experience for those who want to arrive in something totally original, while staying true to our vision of delivering the ultimate business aviation experience,» said Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO of Embraer.
Inside the aircraft, in accordance with that of the car, we find seats with red pull straps, Speed Blue decorative stitching and carbon fiber covers. The cockpit seats are also redesigned to suit the aesthetics of the car. Outside, they both share the same paint palette and scheme, with custom two-tone zippers and hand-painted striped fabrics in Brilliant Chrome and Speed Blue.
The collaboration logo, representing the aerodynamic requirements of the aircraft and the automobile, is engraved on the headrests of the aircraft.
Each delivery will have a special badge that identifies it above the others. For greater exclusivity and easy identification, each Phenom’s license plate will be painted on the underside of the rear wing of the car that belongs to that unique aircraft.
For this first delivery, customers will receive unique and exclusive accessories from both brands such as a custom Duet luggage set and a Porsche Design 1919 Globe Timer UTC watch with a titanium case inspired by the cockpit of an aircraft of this type.
