Did anyone see that 06 KG Exige for sale?

So yesterday I noticed a 2006 Krypton Green Exige for sale on Autotrader, with around 5k miles for about $42k!
I'm wondering if someone got the deal of the century because the posting is now gone.
If someone here snagged it at that price, job well done! With that color and mileage it's easily worth 50k IMO.

It's an '06 so not the SC version. I think the $42k is a good price for that mileage though. It is a rare color to see for sale.

This. As a recent 06 Exige owner and one intimately familiar with the actual sold prices of these in various conditions and mileage, $42-44k is what I would say. To list it immediately at $42k the seller must have been motivated to move it quickly.

So would you say these are inflated a bit?

Absolutely, I would. Those are Exige S prices.

That sounds like the guy we met at the Hunt Valley Cars and Coffee just outside of Baltimore last Saturday. He had been searching for that color Exige with a few specific items and had bought it a week previously and drove it home to Pittsburgh where he lives and then on to Baltimore where his family is. Nice guy, very enthusiastic, and a spectacular car!
