The AVE Class 103 is a series of AVE high speed trains for the Spanish state-run railway company RENFE.

The AVE Class 103 is the fastest conventional rail train in commercial use, although they will not be permitted to reach their top speed until Spanish authorities deem the train control system ETCS Level 2 service-ready. Trains have been constructed by Siemens, as the first member of the company's Velaro family.
