Grand Prix is a 1969 electro-mechanical arcade racing game produced by Sega. The player has control of a racing car in competition and can speed up or slow down by using the gas pedal at the cabinet's base. The object is to avoid and pass other cars without colliding into them. Collisions are accompanied by a crash sound and impact movement by the steering wheel.

It had a first-person view, with a forward-scrolling road projected on a screen. It also had electronic sound, and a dashboard with a racing wheel and accelerator. It uses a similar projection display system as Duck Hunt and Missile, released in early 1969, as well as Jet Rocket and Killer Shark. The gameplay and projection is also similar to the electro-mechanical arcade racing game Indy 500, released by Kasco (Kansai Seiki Seisakusho Co.) in early 1969.
