SOHC is a lot cheaper for this reason, but pretty average for performance cars.

Ferrari Modena... 400 hp, 274 ft lb of torque, DOHC V8- 12.7 mpg.
C6 Corvette... 400 hp, 400 lb ft of torque, SOHC v8 - 21 mpg.
your "lowly" and "cheap" SOHC Corvette engine not only has more torque, it gets lot better gas mileage...
