The Prost AP02 was the car with which the Prost Formula One team used to compete in the 1999 Formula One season. It was driven by Olivier Panis, in his sixth season with the team (including Ligier), and Jarno Trulli, in his second full season with the team.

After the team's dramatic slump in 1998, the 1999 season marked a small improvement in form. The car showed flashes of promise, culminating in Trulli's first podium finish at the Nürburgring. The Italian was rewarded with promotion to Jordan to replace the retiring Damon Hill for 2000, but Panis was released from the team after another generally disappointing year.

The team eventually finished 7th in the constructors' championship, with nine points.
