The Gulfstream you saw was probably a GIII. The GIII has the older Rolls Royce
Spey engines that are not the high by-pass fans that the GIV's or GV's have
today. The GIII does have winglets.

In addition, there are GII's that have been modified with GIII wings, complete
with winglets, and with a  GIII nose, which are more aerodynamic. The modified
GII still has the older engine. The GII does not have the wrap around
windscreen like the GIII, IV, or V. While I have not personally flown a
modified GII, I hear they perform very well..
