Monaco GP (モナコGP) is a 1979 arcade racing game made by Sega. The game is very simple - all the player needs to do is avoid cars and obstacles on a track. He/she can speed up and slow down and two players may play at the same time.

Monaco GP was Sega's last arcade game to use discrete logic circuits rather than a digital CPU, meaning it cannot be emulated in emulators such as MAME. The player's score and time are also displayed on external LED displays, so it is impossible to re-create the game perfectly.

The game only was ported to the Sega SG-1000 in 1983. The SG-1000 version had a difficulty select of one, two, or three other cars on the road. It was quickly followed by Pro Monaco GP which uses similar hardware, but the series would not reach its peak until 1989's Super Monaco GP. The game was, however, included in the Japanese release of the Sega Saturn compilation Sega Ages Memorial Selection Vol: 2. An updated version of the game was released as part of the Sega Ages 2500 series in Japan also.
