Konami GT (also known as Konami RF2 - Red Fighter) is a 1985 racing video game released by Konami, using their GX400 architecture. The player drives a sports car which must reach various checkpoints without running out of fuel. A turbo mode (activated by the gear shift) increases the car's speed but uses more fuel and puts the player at a higher risk of hitting an obstacle. Fuel power-ups can be found on the road which the player must pick up to make it to the final checkpoint.

The RF2 alternative name is a reference to Konami's 1984 arcade game Road Fighter and thus this may be considered an unofficial sequel. The series was followed in 1996 by official sequel Midnight Run - Road Fighter 2.

Konami GT was made available on Microsoft's Game Room service for its Xbox 360 console and for Windows-based PCs on October 6, 2010.
