Plus speed, she's fast, & sexy, she's also more expensive than her Piper counterpart.To be fast and sexy she needs to be sleek and that she is, but she not only comes at an inflated price, her sleek slim body, makes her cabin less spacious and her carrying capacity less, but she gets you there fast and there's no mistaking that she's a hot 327 km/h baby.In conclusion if you want a hot sleek sexy fast aircraft and can live with a less spacious cabin and possibly restricting your luggage capacity, you can't beat the Beechcraft Bonanza, she's the Aston Martin of the sky.
