Of the Rolls-Royce Phantom series, the Phantom IV is the rarest. Only 18 cars were made, exclusively given out to royalty or heads of state... And I want an extremely rich secretive family from my story to own one. The problem is, there's lists of who the cars originally belonged to, but I can't find anything on who owns the cars now.
From what I've gathered, there's one that belong to Queen Elizabeth but was put up/is on auction, at least two owned by private business men, (three for Spain's king if Wikipedia can be trusted), and one that was used for testing and was destroyed. So far, I haven't been able to find anything concerning the other ones.
So, I was wondering if anyone knows anything about the current status of the Phantom IVs, whether they're all still account for or whether a couple have been lost over the past 50 years. It would be good if there was at least one lost since then I won't have to much explaining. If there aren't, then I'll probable have to invent something dealing with the a secret switch of the one that was destroyed by the company or something not lame.
Googled: rolls-royce phantom iv, phantom iv, "phantom iv" & (missing, lost, long lost, registered, accounted for, unaccounted, owners, ownership, current, current history, present day, and a bunch of other words that I searched for first but were so far back that I can't find them on my history and can't remember them to save my life... which really irks me now that I can't think of them... *pounds brain*)
