Scion FRS vs Ferrari Ford SVT Cobra Drag Racing
Can a Scion FR-S with a 4.2L V8 engine from a Ferrari making 420hp take on a modified 2004 Ford SVT Cobra? Well, on paper, it doesn’t appear to be the case, especially since the Cobra has a Whipple-supercharged 4.6L V8 engine producing 670hp, mated to a 6-speed manual, but the results may surprise you.

How do they stack up in the weight department? Well, the Ford SVT Cobra tips the scale at around 3,600-pounds, while the Scion FR-S clocks in at 2,750-pounds, even with the Ferrari engine. Unfortunately, both vehicles are not designed for drag racing, so there will be some obvious traction issues, but the Cobra’s torque may be too much for the FR-S to overcome without some type of forced induction.
