Slated for presentation at the Geneva Motor Show, the model will be distributed to a select set of Koenigsegg’s best clients.

Although the technical specs of the Koenigsegg Razer Blade have yet to be announced, it is known that the machine will allow gamers to take the Agera R for a virtual spin. This is the first model produced through a new long-term partnership between the two companies, who are expected to launch several new gaming PCs over the coming years.

To celebrate the launch of the new tie-up with the Swedish supercar brand, Razer is hosting an online contest to give away two Koenigsegg Razer Blade PCs: razerzone.com/koenigsegg.

The contest is actually the only way for ordinary consumers to get their hands on the new gaming PC, which will not be sold to the general public, but distributed to a select elite (namely, Koenigsegg’s clients).

The Swedish carmaker is not the first supercar brand to team up with a computer manufacturer: Lamborghini and Asus, just like Ferrari and Acer, have presented joint-branded notebook PCs in the past.

Alongside the new PC, Koenigsegg’s stand in Geneva will also feature the brand’s latest supercar creation: the One:1.
