The Kintetsu 16600 series "Ace" (近鉄16600系「Ace」) is a limited express electric multiple unit (EMU) train type operated by Kintetsu Railway in Japan since 19 June 2010.[1]

Initially, two 2-car sets were introduced, at a cost of approximately 800 million yen. They are operated on the Minami Osaka and Yoshino Lines, replacing the earlier 16000 series (ja) trains.[1]

The design is based on the Kintetsu 22600 series trains used on the standard gauge Osaka and Nara Lines since 2009.[1]
