Famicom Grand Prix II: 3D Hot Rally (ファミコングランプリII スリーディーホットラリー) is a racing video game released in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. It is the sequel to Famicom Grand Prix: F-1 Race, although the two games are very different. The game play is similar to that of Rad Racer, which was released before it.

Mario and Luigi are playable characters in the game and they can ride one of three cars:
