The BRM P201 was a Formula 1 racing car built and used in the 1974 and 1975 seasons of Formula 1 by the British Racing Motors team.

The P201 was designed by Mike Pilbeam and had very square edges. The driver was very low in the cockpit. The weak point of the car was the completely outdated BRM-12-cylinder engine, which had too little power and needed a lot of fuel.

The P201 had his first race with Frenchman Jean-Pierre Beltoise at the wheel at the 1974 South African Grand Prix at Kyalami. He surprised the competition when he came second place, behind Carlos Reutemann in a Brabham BT44. This was the last time a BRM Formula 1 would be on the podium. At the Belgian Grand Prix at Nivelles-Baulers Beltoise reached fifth place.
