Still a very rare car with only 100 ever built, not sure how many remain though. Any pictures mate?
FQ 400 engine is forged out of the box

Quite interesting the values on modified cars and standard cars since my FQ400 featured in Evolution mag. I have had firm offers in the low £30k mark and the car is far from Standard. 007 Evolution mag issue 18

Yes but yours has been modified nicely good brakes etc I suppose it's personal taste but I think a standard looking fq400 with quality mods would be the perfect later Evo

Got to be worth the high 20's to early 30's surely. If completely standard then more. There aren't many left I'm sure and hardly ever come up for sale. If red TME's are commanding 40-50k then FQ400 should be worth a premium too.

I'd say low 20s as you could get a nice 360 hks for mid 20s
And they seem to be the collectors car

I'd prefere a fq400 over a 360 hks everyday of the week. It makes you wounder about that car for sale.

Say it is a nail due to it not selling for years, is it solid underneath? I know it might not have the history but if someone did a documented resto on here etc I could still see it becoming a nice car. I hate to see cars classed as investments cars are for driving but I must admit there's nothing better than seeing a car progress as you tidy it up.

To me this car is all about condition, personally a stroker conversion would add to its appeal, but that may be a deterrent to the purist collector. Ultimately, to get strong (top end of suggested values) money it needs to be in good condition outside, inside and underneath, otherwise id say it will be to the lower end of suggestions on here

If you enjoy the car keep it all evo's will go up in value tme,fq's especially, different specs appeal to different owners,cannot see any evo's going down in value now.How much wil non pink tme's be worth in five years time as an example?
