- 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.
