There is a less expensive version?... not in my neck of the woods.
Ok. Buying a sport makes a lot of sense if you S-C wheels, drive components and suspension. I agree.
If you want an "out of the box" Sport S that is as capable as a Willys "out of the box"... then no... you will not save money buying the Sport S and putting in the same options... Biggest change, Willys have MTs, Sport S street tires.
What ever price compare you do for a special edition is based on the logic of "I like it pre-packed like this and I probably will buy floor mats and call it a day".
If you modify Jeeps then a Special Edition is a waste of money. If you are going to modify a Willys then just get a Rubicon and put bigger tires on it and you'd have a the best 4x4 out there.
