The BAR 002 was the car with which the British American Racing Formula One team competed in the 2000 Formula One season. It was driven by the 1997 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve, and Brazilian Ricardo Zonta, both drivers in their second year with the team.

The car proved a reassuringly competent runner after the 1999 disaster; the team's début season in which it embarrassingly failed to score any points. Villeneuve scored seven points finishes, whilst Zonta backed him up with three. However, the number two driver was dropped at the end of the year to make way for Olivier Panis, who had spent the season as McLaren's test driver.

The year also marked the inaugural season of a Honda engine supply, a partnership which would eventually lead to the team being bought out by the Japanese company for the 2006 season.

The team eventually finished fifth in the Constructors' Championship, with 20 points. This tally was equal to the Benetton team, but Giancarlo Fisichella's podium finishes ensured that the Anglo-Italian team stayed ahead.
