Those Picador's never ditched in the sea. No..No..Noo..
Remote radio control was lost so the aircraft just flew on up through the atmosphere and into space.
A couple landed on Mars the mid 70's and the clever Martians copied the design, fitted a dual seat and produced several hundred more machines.
Although they were expensive, many of the more well-to-do Martian folks bought them as they were the fastest production machine available anywhere in the solar system.
Dozens were exported to Venus and beyond. Rumour has it that a few early originals even made it as far Uranus.
They formed a Vincent Picador Owner's Club which continues to thrive to this day. In fact, there has been a suggestion that, with the cooperation of Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic, the first intergalactic VPC rally could take place on the moon as soon as the year 2025.

I just sent a text to the Mars Section Organiser to see if he knows.
Only takes a text message about 4 minutes to get there so I should know by later today.:)
