Comic fans (or even fans of the Tim Burton original) will know it as the Bat-Wing but perhaps that name was a bit too silly for this franchise, where even the iconic Batmobile was renamed, but since this version has no actual wings it's a less egregious change.
From the upcoming book The Dark Knight Manual : Tools, Weapons, Vehicles and Documents from the Batcave by Brandon T. Snider, Super Hero Hype made some scans that highlight Batman's latest vehicle and the Fusion Reactor that powers it. Click to enlarge.
The book, which will be released June 26th, is described as follows:
"In 2005, filmmaker Christopher Nolan redefined Batman for a new generation with Batman Begins, followed in 2008 by The Dark Knight, and now 2012’s conclusion to the trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. Here, for the first time, is an in-world exploration of Christopher Nolan’s Batman: The Dark Knight Manual, the definitive guide to his tools, vehicles, and technologies.
Following the destruction of Wayne Manor, Bruce Wayne began to assemble key sketches, diagrams, observations, and other top-secret documents germane to becoming Batman; he then entrusted this manual to his faithful butler, Alfred. Every defining moment is detailed here, charting Wayne’s collaborations with Lucius Fox at Wayne Enterprises on the latest cutting-edge technology.
Featuring removable documents, including the design and capability of the famed utility belt, the hi-tech functions of Batman’s cowl, and every detail of his amazing arsenal of weapons and gadgets, The Dark Knight Manual reveals how Bruce Wayne operates as Gotham’s greatest protector."
Much like everything in Nolan's Batman movies, a real focus is placed on functionality over design, The Bat (or any Nolanverse vehicle) may not look as sleek and stylised as more traditional takes, but there is a deliberate logic to them. They may not sell as many toys but they work.
