What business turboprop is the fastest and is even faster than some early citations?

This would be ironic, but the Cessna Conquest... C425 or C441 I think. Now would this be twin or single engined, b/c the TBM 700 cruises at 300kts

Elite_Flyer, I don't know if you were joking or not, but the last I heard, the Concorde was not a turboprop! LOL
As for the question, I have no clue, but will be interested to hear the answer! Have a great day!

Ok, here are a few more guesses... the Beech Starship flew at around 330kts and there was some weird Italian executive turboprop that flew pretty quickly. It is definately not a King Air, speed is not their forte. I know Metroliners and Merlins were sold in executive configs too... the Cessnas were pretty quick. The PC-12 is not too quick nor the Piper Meridian. Ok, well I have listed all the corporate turboprop aircraft I can think of. One of them is bound to be quicker than a Citation 500.

You are thinking of the Piaggio P.180 Avanti (...weird Italian executive turboprop...) It has a cruising speed of 395 kts(732 km/h) at 28,300 ft(8625m) compared to 374kts(693 km/h) for the Citation II.

Thanks for the clarification. I knew it was something like that. I remember seeing ads for it in Flying magazine. I don't think it ever really sold too well.

Pronto got it, the P.180 pusher prop is the fastest@ up to 395kt however, the Cheyenne 400LS comes in second @ 351 kts max cruise, just a few knots faster than the Ce500. Both airplanes look and perform awesome. If I had a choice I would go with the Cheyenne400LS if I won the lottery. Wouldn't it be cool to pass a citation in cruise in a turbo prop? Thanks for the replies.

I forgot about the Chyenne... I think they made fewer than 100 of the 400LS though... so it would be a nice find. Just be careful when you try to dragrace a Citation. The CE-500 uses the same callsign as the mach .92 capable Citation X. Happy flying.
