Peter Luttenberger (born 13 December 1972) is an Austrian professional road bicycle racer. He finished fifth in the General classification of the 1996 Tour de France, but he never again managed to live up to the promise of that result, with a position as 13 in 1997 and 2003 as the best later results. It should however be noted that if all dopers were removed from the 1996 Tour results, Luttenberger would be awarded the win. He was born in Bad Radkersburg.
