Considering the car is already sold any price, it doesn't need to be competitive.
But to make it clear, the car does not produce 350 hp, the articles state OVER 350hp. Just as the race version produces OVER 400hp. The teams and drivers using the race version estimate it's actually has more power than the 500HP M5 engine used in the Grand American racing series. It's safe to say this one has likewise been very much under rated.
This car exists only to meet the Lemans series requirements. End of story. You won't find it's road going competitor, the Porsche GT2, for any cheaper either. And if you compare the specs for the chassis, weight, use of composites, suspension, etc, I think you'll find the M3 GTR is FAR closer to the track version than the Porsche GT2 is.
