Question for the community:
Would the 1988 40th Anniversary Lotus Esprit Turbo, of which 88 of these special editions built, worth any more because it's a special edition? Curious. Thinking about buying one to add to my Exige.

So few Esprits were built that, every one is a "Limited Edition".:) The Esprit had several "special" editions through out the years. Other than the Sport 300 and Sport 350 (and maybe the Final Edition), I don't think being an Anniversary edition adds a lot of value to the car.

I prefer the 1988 40th Anniversary Edition Esprit over a normal production Esprit Turbo of the same year.
The special pearl white paint,colour matched wheels and blue and grey suede interior look great IMO .
As long as its in good condition (especially the interior) I would think it would be worth at least 10% to 20% more than an ordinary '88 in the same condition.
However most do not want the pre-'89 non -chargecooled Citroen transaxle Stevens era Esprits as the later SE offers a marked performance and handling advantage over the early X180 model which pretty much had the same drivetrain and chassis setup as the late HCI Giugiaro Esprit.
