Tupolev 95 (Bear) can do M0.8 at 30,000. It does have 4 16000shp turboprops though!

Some aircraft-- but why not put jet engines on it?

Saab 2000 must be the best looking turbo. Thinks... if only there had been type commonality with the 340...
I should think that the Q400 DASH 8 and the Dornier 328 must give it a good run for its money in the speed stakes though.

The Saab 2000 doesn't have auto-throttle and no V-nav AP.
AT should be possible, I think.
