In anime and manga

Spoiler alert!

This section of the article may contains details concerning the progression of the plot. If you do not want it to be spoiled for you, skip this section!

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.
