Tesshin Okada (Maker)
The Super Avante (スーパーアバンテ) is a Mini 4WD car released on February 28, 1995 by Tamiya. It is one of the variants of the Avante Jr..
It was featured in the manga and anime Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go! where it was made by Tesshin Okada, and was kept by Dr.Tsuchiya. It was the prototype and the base of the Saber machines the Seiba brothers own.
The bodyshell of the Super Avante is similar to that of the original Avante Jr., but with major differences. The front absorber props have been replaced by a pair of fins and air-ducts for cooling the motor while running.
Super Avante, VS, White Special and RS
The bodyshell of the original Super Avante, the VS variant, the White Special variant and the RS variant, were molded in white, with two tones of blue mix onto it.
Instead of the Type-2 Chassis of the original Avante, the original Super Avante comes with the Type-5 Chassis. VS and White Special were equipped with VS Chassis, while the RS variant was equipped with the blue Super-II Chassis.
Both variants comes equipped with Avante-type slick tires and large-diameter 6-spoke Teardrop-type wheels, with the original Super Avante and VS variant being equipped with the red wheels and black tires, the White Special variant being equipped with white wheels and tires and the RS variant being equipped with silver-plated wheels and lightsalmon tires.
Black Special and Tamiya Korea 20th Anniversary Special
Both the Black Special and Tamiya Korea 20th Anniversary Special featuring the black bodyshells with different body decals design and metallic blue canopy.
Both variants comes equipped with the blue-plated, large-diameter 5-spoke lightweight narrow wheels paired with yellow hard arched tires.
A variant of the Black Special, which was released on October 1st, 2016, also comes with the carbon lightweight wheels in addition to the blue-plated wheels..
In anime and manga
In Let's & Go!, shortly after the Seiba brothers got out of the virtual racing simlutator cockpits, they found out that someone has been broken into Dr.Tsuchiya's lab and stole something: the Super Avante. In the end, they retrieved the Super Avante despite it being damaged; losing a front right wheel and the front right bumper parts.
In the anime version, it was two armed goons hired by Dr. Ogami who stole the Super Avante, while in the manga, it was someone from an undisclosed rival corporation.

- The Super Avante, along with Avante X and Avante Mk.III, are the only Avante Mini 4WD cars without a radio control counterparts.
- The Super Avante was initially created for Bakusou Kyoudai Let's & Go!, hence the lack of a radio control counterpart; however, later re-releases omit the Let's & Go! fact; the sticker packet in the RS version also omitted the KOSHITA/SHOGAKUKAN copyright.
- The Super Avante is the only car that has multiple SK Japan special re-release, dubbed Ifrit (available in 4 colors), Legend Style (available in 2 colors) and Legend Style Next (available in 2 colors). Both versions use VS Chassis, so does a special edition of the car celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Korean branch of Tamiya.
