The Super Avante (スーパーアバンテ) is a Mini 4WD car released in 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 Akada, and was kept by Dr.Tsuchiya. It was the prototype and the base of the Saber machines the Seiba brothers own.

General Info

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 The front absorber props have been replaced by a pair of fins and air-ducts for cooling the motor while running. The body is colored in white, with two tones of blue mix onto it.

Instead of the Type-2 Chassis, the original Super Avante comes with the Type-5 Chassis and also comes equipped with low-profile tires and red large-diameter wheels. Later versions of Super Avante has different chassis and wheels setup, most of them running VS Chassis, except for the RS variant, which uses Super-II Chassis.

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 is the only Avante without a radio control counterpart, as it was initially created for Let's and Go!. However, later re-releases omit the Let's and Go! fact; the sticker packet in the RS version also omitted the KOSHITA/SHOGAKUKAN copyright.
