According to the manufacturer, it is currently the fastest civilian aircraft in the world.  The first Citation X was delivered in July 1996 to golfer and long-time Cessna customer Arnold Palmer who set a speed record in September 1997: 473 knots (876 km/h) on a 5,000 km closed course.  First flown in 1993, more than 330 of these have been built.  Nikon D500 w/ Tamron 150-600 mm, processed with Aperture.
