Sega Rally Special Stage (セガラリースペシャルステージ) was a medium scale attraction based on Sega Rally Championship that was located at Shinjuku Joypolis in the late 1990s.

Sega Rally Special Stage's gameplay was largely identical to the original Sega Rally, with its main draw being the surroundings it could now be played in - full-sized Toyota Celica GT-Four cars fixed to motion bases, with large projection canvases in front of their windscreens to display the game.

The Celica units moved on a fixed axis with 6 directions of movement. Whilst stripped of many other original parts, the cars retained their passenger seats, thus making it possible for two people to ride at once for an increased admission price. Non-first person camera options and the ability to drive as both of the two Lancia cars were also removed; likewise, no multiplayer options were available.

It is not thought Sega Rally Special Stage ever appeared outside of Shinjuku Joypolis, and as such there have been no known units in operation since the venue's August 2000 closure. However, the technology used in it would go on to inspire the multiplayer-enabled Sega Touring Car Championship Special in 1997, as well as its own successor Initial D Arcade Stage 4 Limited in 2007.
