The BAR 004 was the car with which the British American Racing team competed in the 2002 Formula One season. It was driven by Jacques Villeneuve and Olivier Panis. The BAR 004 was the first-ever BAR car to be fully designed by British American Racing after 3-year alliance with Reynard Motorsport.

Jacques Villeneuve (pictured at the 2002 USGP) was the driver of the number 11 BAR 004.

During the season the car was unreliable having a dismal start which saw the team fail to score a single championship point during the first half of the season. Also Olivier Panis failed to finish the first seven races. The team scored their first points when they finished fourth and fifth at the 2002 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Eventually the team finished eighth in the Constructors' Championship with seven points.
