At end of the day we dont all like a car in red being totally honest.The upside of this price rise in TME s is that it appears to be across the entire Evo range.So even a TME in another colour is going to command a higher price aswell and it is happening at an astonishing rate especially in the last 18months.
I personally dont think we have seen this happen with a modern mass produced sports car in quite the same way.
Its not because they are rare i think the Evo has an iconic following similar to Sierra Cosworths/Escort Cosworths BUT i think the difference is that the Evo was ahead of its time .
So now we have an iconic car that is getting rarer each year no matter what and prices tbh i think will go up across the board with even an Evo 6 gsr in good condition hitting 25k a few yrs from now .A Makinen in good condition non red probably 35k plus and the red TME i seriously think 50k easy as already near that now so probably higher.

Yes prices have increased however not EVERY red tme will command a £45k price tag. You will get rough ones / high mileage / repaired / colour change etc which no doubt some sellers (dealers) will overprice just to jump on the band wagon but how many will actually sell is the key question.
