I don't think color has much to do with resale value, unless a buyer really, truly has his heart set on a color. Then it gets down to supply/demand.

I have a Canyon Red and love it, but I got a fantastic deal on it. For that deal, I'd have taken it in almost any color but Krypton Green or that other flourescent green that just came out. For those I don't know that the seller could've taken enough money out of the deal for me to buy.

Owned, loved, enjoyed, and now gone:
1969 Europa S2 Blue
1970 Europa S2 White
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1974 Europa Twin Cam Blue
1984 Turbo Esprit Calypso Red
2005 Elise Starlight Black
2005 Elise Saffron Yellow
2005 Elise Ardent Red
2006 Exige Graphite Grey
2007 Exige Canyon Red

Other:
1970 MGB GT
1970 Datsun 510
1984 Honda CRX Si
1984 Pontiac Fiero
2004 Chrysler Crossfire
2009 Pontiac Solstice Coupe

Phantom black is the most macho color for an Exige. Even a clean one.

And there's always one of my favorites, orange...

The last one is an Elise, but who cares?

If it wasn't for the spammers, we would miss all these great threads that slipped by.

I like Racing Green, but haven't seen an Exige in that color. And of course the one Persian Blue car, which looks awesome.

Where does one get one of those hood ornaments? Must be a California option!

I think many people make a good point when they say the best color is on a person to person basis. its about what you like. personally that green catches my eye the most.
