DeepFlight has unveiled its latest product, the stunning $1.7m Super Falcon Mark II personal submarine that has been designed to mimic the feeling of flying, but underwater.

This toy for the rich and famous looks every bit the James Bond prop, which is appropriate considering that DeepFlight was founded by Graham Hawkes, a British marine engineer who helped pilot one of the submarines in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only.

Able to reach a depth of 120 metres the Super Falcon Mark II is more than just a play thing.

There's room for two passengers with 12 hours of air for both. Visibility comes courtesy of two powerful LED lights while a lithium ion battery provides the power.

Steering the Super Falcon couldn't be easier as it comes with a fly-by-wire control system allowing it to perform much like an aircraft.

You can have an optional heads-up display installed as well for that true fighter jet feeling although we can imagine it comes at some cost.
