We often write about collaborations — though usually, they’re linkups between high-profile designers, industry veterans tapping up-and-coming talent, or perhaps an auto brand spreading its wings into footwear. Still, some offerings are so deliciously “what the hell?” inspiring, they’re in a category of their own. Enter the Razer Blade 16 x Automobili Lamborghini Edition computer. No, you aren’t having a fever dream: the prolific racing car brand has made its way into the world of tech, zooming onto cutting-edge Razer Blade screens. It’s so creatively lavish, we couldn’t resist.
The Razer Enki Pro – Automobili Lamborghini Edition chair is an effortless centrepiece — electric, fiery-orange lines pop against dark Alcantara leather (a material commonly applied to autos, might we add) — but it’s not the only thing offering molten-lava aesthetics. Take a seat and boot up the collaborative computer to see top-notch Lamborghini design enter the tech world. Unapologetically bright, the fiery collaboration brings the futuristic and bold ethos of Lamborghini design to the heavy-duty Razer Blade 16. Not only do these laptops work hard, but they look good doing it.
Despite the gaping valley of differences between autos and laptops, this link-up does touch on a commonality between Lamborghini and Razer Blade. This past spring, we covered the launch of the Lamborghini Revuelto — the first HPEV (high-performance electric vehicle) of its kind. The Revuelto’s electric-orange lights promised a groundbreaking experience, daring to push the limits of sustainability and speed at the same time. The Razer Blade 16 x Automobili Lamborghini Edition honours the HPEV with fearless bursts of orange all over its sleek silhouette.
The Revuelto challenged the notions of what auto can be. With the car, Lamborghini posited that sports cars are more than a sexy machine — they’re a frontier for innovation. Though it would’ve been easy to see modern limits on emissions as a limitation, Lamborghini didn’t throw in the towel and compromise. Instead, new regulations provided the framework for Lamborghini to deliver their signature speed and style, with updated technology to suit a changing market (and climate). In other words, Lamborghini turned a challenge into an opportunity.
Clearly, the Revuelto’s grit and determination inspired Razer Blade — after all, the laptop sports pulsing flashes of orange to honour the Lamborghini sports car. Like the automaker, Razer Blade is committed to excellence; even the smallest challenge prompts innovative solutions. Ever felt your computer overheat mid-task? This grievance inspired Razer Blade’s patented vapour chamber cooling system, uniquely crafted to combat scalding laptops during even the most high-intensity programs.
Perhaps the most obvious parallel between Lamborghini’s cars and the Razer Blade laptop, though, is their shared combination of sleek design, cutting-edge technology, and rapid-fire speed. Made with designers and gamers in mind, this thing doesn’t compromise on either end. It’s outfitted for the best of both creativity and gaming; the laptop offers a sweet, seamless balance of super-sharp 4k display (ideal for graphic work) and rapid refresh rates for gaming — compared to the Razer Blade 15, the Razer Blade 16 x Automobili Lamborghini Edition got more than twice the number of frames per second. Whichever camp you’re in, the Lamborghini Laptop has the power to match your ambition.
