FAST KNIGHT RISING: Nissan's Deltawing Brings The Bat To The Race Track

The only thing the Batmobile has had in common with professional race cars up until this point is the fact I've never driven any of them. However, I think the design team at Nissan have let their anticipation for this year's upcoming blockbuster The Dark Knight Rises flow over, as they release visuals of their new fully-functional Deltawing.

Dubbed the future of IndyCar racing, Nissan hopes the Deltawing brings a 'new' standard to race design. With twin seats like the old Adam West Batmobile, married with a sleek long nose and aerodynamic fins like the pimped-out bat-rides of the Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher era, the Deltawing not only proves Bat-fans are everywhere, it moves just like Burton's infamous jet-powered beastie too. Just watch;

Okay so it's still not me in the driving seat and the cornering is a little iffy in spots, but both those faults could be pretty easily fixed. Wanna' go for a spin?
