"When it comes to luxury private jets, this is the cream of the crop. With a Luxor you're joining an elite club of all the best kind of people: super-rich celebrities, businessmen and African dictators."
ElitasTravel.com description

The Buckingham Luxor is a fixed-wing private jet in Grand Theft Auto V.

The Luxor is essentially the private/business jet version of civilian/commercial Shamal.

Design

The Luxor is essentially the private/business jet version of civilian/commercial Shamal. It seems to combine features of the Cessna Citation 560/650, Sovereign, and the Learjet 45. It has a mahogany interior and seats for 10 people.

Performance

The Luxor is a good way for a leisurely flight but not so in a competitive way. The Luxor is on par with the Shamal as the fifth fastest aircraft, outperformed by the Hydra, P-996 Lazer, Besra, and Vestra. However, the Luxor has the least mobility and the greatest vehicle mass in a GTA Online Air Race; It won't take corners as sharply as the Duster but it can keep up a good lead in the straight.

Variants

A "Deluxe" version which features a gold paintjob is featured in the new Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 update. It distinguishes from the standard variant by having additional features on the interior and able to drink champagne, smoke cigars and browse the internet via this vehicle.

Locations

Grand Theft Auto V

  • Can be purchased on ElitasTravel.com for $1,500,000.

    • One can be found taxiing near Michael's hangar. It will park in front of it. Sometimes it will be a Shamal instead.

Trivia

  • The emblem on the back of the Luxor is actually the coat of arms of Emperor Rudolf II of Habsburg. Here's a version of it.
  • The Luxor was originally supposed to be colored white, instead of black.
  • Unlike the Jet, it cannot be seen taking off, only landing.
  • The Luxor is essentially a private jet version of the Shamal, while the Shamal is civilian and commercial.
  • Elitás Travel's page of the Luxor says that "Internet Entrepreneur Tony McTony owns one in red with a huge yellow M on the side, custom-fitted with chandeliers, gold toilets, seal-skin waterbeds, DJ booth, marble statue of himself, dogfighting ring, bottom-less flight attendants, and a margarita machine in the cockpit."
  • Its livery might suggest it is based on Etihad Airways the Emirati Airline based out of Abu Dhabi.
  • It is possible the airlines San Fierro Air and Los Santos Air use fleets of Luxors, as both are assigned terminals at Los Santos International Airport, yet do not have any marked aircraft and multiple Luxors are present in the area.
  • The Luxor cannot fit in Trevor's hanger by reversing it. However, if placed in by going forwards and then leaving the area, it will spawn there and the tail should slide out when accelerating.
  • In GTA V, despite the plane being able to sit 10 people, including the pilot, in Online mode, it cannot sit more than 2 persons in Story Mode. If you reunite all three protagonists and enter a Luxor, one of the two will sit next to you and the third will stand out of the plane.
  • A picture of the Luxor can be seen in the Max Payne 3 multiplayer map "Tiete River Docks" along with pictures of a Shamal, a Titan and a Hydra.
  • The size and weight of the Luxor along with its retractable gear produce enough drag to tear the landing gear off, and in reality is is highly advised against to leave landing gear protruded.

Glitches

  • When the nose of the plane is damaged, it will somehow become transparent.
