What is the Aston Martin MGB prototype, currently in the Classics section, worth?

What value would you put on the Aston Martin MGB in the Classics section of your website? This was a prototype MGB built by Aston Martin in 1979 with the idea of continuing production when BL boss Michael Edwardes pulled the plug on the MGB.

“He means this one: classics.honestjohn.co.uk/news/comment/2013-06/fri.../. Last time I know it, the car was for sale at a dealer for £29,950, and remained unsold for a very long time: www.aronline.co.uk/blogs/cars/aston-martin/for-sal.../. I'd say in the current market, it's a £25,000 car. But as a one-off with an interesting story, it's near-impossible to value, and depends entirely on whether more than one person would want to own it, and how badly.”
