Hang-On GP, known in Japan as Hang-On GP '95 (ハングオン GP ’95) and in Europe as Hang-On GP '96 is a Sega Saturn motorbike racing game and a sequel to Super Hang-On. It is the only Hang-On game so far to be presented in 3D, and the only game to adopt the Sega Sports branding. During development it was known as Virtua Hang-On, which would have tied it closer to Sega's arcade titles, Virtua Racing and Virtua Fighter.

Hang-On GP received mixed reviews at the time of release. Some praised the game for being one of the first 3D motorbike racing games for home consoles, while others criticised the poor controls and lack of animation. Compared to Sega AM3's Manx TT Superbike, Hang-On GP appears to be a much simpler and less polished title, though it does offer more playable courses.
