I've done some additional research on #020 (or actually #76024, with parallel history), and I don't think that car is under one under the cover. That leaves just #004? (if it is a CC8S/CCR).

#003 "disappeared" in 2004, but is probably used for building #026 (not seen for 2½ year)
#004 "disappeared" in 2004, former PR/Press car, last seen at the factory (I think this is the "covered" car)..
#020 "disappeared" in 2006, but was filmed 2009 at the factory, probably in private Russian collection
#031 has a big hole in the history 2006 - 2012, not missing any more..
#039 last seen London July 2008. Reported to be part of the Al Maktoum collection.
#067 See earlier posts in this thread..

Hey look what i found, for sale since 2010.

2008 Koenigsegg CCX Supercar - New Car for Sale in Saudi Arabia

Edit: I think this is #063, watch the mirros.
I think the covered car is #004 aswell, seems reasonable. Someone with a teamspeed account could maybe ask in the "ask Koenigsegg" thread, and hopefully Jens or someone else will answer what car it actually is.

#002, last seen March 30, 2011? Very soon qualifies as "disappeared" if that's correct? Any later spots?

So although it hasn't been 3 years, whatever happened to #85? I feel like I haven't seen any photos of it since delivery.

#085 was put together and photographed for Koenigsegg summer 2011, then stayed at the factory until November when it was shown at Top Marques Macau. Then back at the factory, shipped from the factory again mid February 2012. Got Chinese papers in October 2012 (and a photo session for autohome.com.cn where the pictures are named v_201210ddhhmmssxxx). Spotted in Bejing in December and Shenzhen in Guangdong Province in January 2013. I had links to two spots in February 2013, but pictures where removed :^( This unknown "when and where" picture posted at Instagram in November 2013 is the last thing I have at my timeline.

Found pictures of #067 at Instagram, don't know if it's new pictures or old

I talked to Jens today about our mystery covered car, and he confirmed that it is in fact NOT #004. He said the car has not been at the factory in some time, and it is currently in storage in another facility with it's owner. It is NOT being used for parts either, it is fully intact running vehicle.

This is really confusing to me. I might have missed something, but I was quite sure it was #004. I'm not sure Jens know details about the cars or feels he has to tell where every car is. Or if he really was talking about the same car (#002?)? Did he tell who was under "the" cover? Who are the candidates really?

He wasn't sure on the exact chassis #s, but I described the car to him "Black exterior, brown interior, middle eastern vehicle at one point" and he immediately knew what car I was talking about and then gave me those details I listed earlier.

He didn't say anything about it, but he did chuckle a bit when I asked him, #004 is at a facility somewhere not too far I guess. It's a friend of his he said
