(Newser) – French President Nicolas Sarkozy has named his new $80 million official jet Carla One in honor of his third wife, reports the Telegraph.  "She's a beautiful plane and, of course, officially named after the president's wife," said a source. Carla One has been hand-painted along the side of the ultra-luxe Dassault Falcon 7X, which is outfitted with teak desks and full leather seats.
