RE Amemiya Car Co Ltd (有限会社RE雨宮自動車 Yūgen Kaisha Āru-ī Amemiya Jidōsha) is an automotive tuning company from Chiba, Chiba Prefecture, Japan founded by Isami Amemiya. Amemiya has made a name for himself tuning rotary engines since 1974 and has become a pioneer in tuning rotary-powered Mazdas. Thirty years later, first on the street and later in the Super GT series, Amemiya has left its mark in the tuning and motorsports worlds for rotaries.

In addition to competing in tuner events, in 1995 his company RE Amemiya (RE for Rotary Engine) began its participation as the lone rotary entry in the Super GT series with a 3-rotor 20B-powered Mazda RX-7 in the GT300 class.[1] This car was featured in Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 4, Gran Turismo 5 and Gran Turismo 6.

In 2006 the team was rewarded when they captured the class championship. The company also have competed in the D1 Grand Prix drifting series since 2004. For their second year of competition (2005), their driver Masao Suenaga, scored a sole victory at Fuji Speedway, but finished as runner up overall in the Grand Prix, losing by just one point to Yasuyuki Kazama.

RE Amemiya's cars are often featured on the Japanese show Hot Version. Hot Version often shows Keiichi Tsuchiya and other professional drivers competing in Touge events; these events are run in a cat and mouse fashion, much like the form of racing seen in the Initial D franchise. RE Amemiya's RX-7 often battles with the Amuse Power House S2000, the J's Racing S2000 and the MCR R34 GT-R. RE Amemiya's RX-7 held the title of Togue Monster from 2004 to 2007, when it went against J's Racing at the Touge GP 2007 event with a new blue FD3S RX-7 which had revised side-ports and a new turbine; this car was built after almost losing to Amuse's S2300 GT-1 with their blue FD3S during Touge GP 2006. The company reclaimed its togue title after winning against J's Racing's Honda S2000 in 2009 with their green FD3S. Thus far, RE Amemiya has won the Togue Monster title three times, each with a different car.
