Midtown Madness 3 is a 2003 open world racing video game developed by Digital Illusions CE and published by Microsoft Game Studios for the Xbox. It is the third game in the Midtown Madness series.

Online modes were available via Xbox Live. Reception for Midtown Madness 3 was positive, with aggregators GameRankings reporting a score of 80.24%, and Metacritic a score 76 out of 100.
