The 1983 Italian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Monza on 11 September 1983.

The race was the scene of a very unusual sight in the pits. After completing his pitstop Niki Lauda's McLaren-TAG stalled in front of the Brabham pits. Brabham team owner (and the head of the Formula One Constructors Association) Bernie Ecclestone came out and helped give the McLaren a push start to get back into the race.

During qualifying Nelson Piquet recorded 306 km/h (190 mph) in his BMW powered Brabham BT52. The only other drivers to break the 300 km/h (186 mph) barrier were his team mate Riccardo Patrese and the McLarens of Niki Lauda and John Watson. This was the first race in which both McLarens used the new turbocharged TAG-Porsche engine instead of the Cosworth DFV V8 engines the team had used since 1968 (Lauda had debuted the TAG engine in the previous race in the Netherlands while Watson still used the DFV).
