Trulli GP (officially Trulli Formula E Team) was a Swiss motor racing team founded by former Formula One driver and Monaco Grand Prix winner Jarno Trulli to compete in the inaugural FIA Formula E Championship for electric cars. The team competed in a technical partnership with Drayson Racing Technologies. It was announced on 1 July 2014 that the team was operating with Super Nova Racing. Trulli announced that he would drive for the team, while later Italian Auto GP driver Michela Cerruti was announced as the second driver for the team.

For the 2015 Miami ePrix, Jarno Trulli and Vitantonio Liuzzi became teammates in the lineup. Trulli commented that it was his past driving history that allowed the Trulli Formula E team to even happen in the first place – four months before the first race of the season in China, as a last minute replacement for Drayson's entry on the grid. For the 2015 London ePrix, Liuzzi was replaced by Alex Fontana, as Liuzzi was competing in the GT Asia Series round at Okayama on the same weekend.
Being the driver was the key to launch the team at the beginning, given my experience and helping set up everything around what is a formula team. I've learned many things. It's a good challenge. I hope we will be successful. But it's quite a big commitment to be honest. It's tougher than expected. But it's good to have a team. In my position, I feel more a team owner than a driver. I'm really focusing on the future of the team.— Jarno Trulli, MotorSportsTalk
For the 2015–16 Formula E season, it was announced that Trulli would step back from the racing side of the team, with Salvador Durán partnering Liuzzi. The team did not pass scrutineering for either of the first two races, and folded after the 2015 Putrajaya ePrix.
