Fabral (full name: Fábrica Brasileira de Automóveis Ltda, or "the Brazilian Car Factory") is an off-road vehicle manufacturer based in Palmas, Tocantins, Brazil. Fabral was established in 2002 with money from the Mozambiquean Tricôs group.[1] The company's first president was Abdul Majid Ibraimo.[2] They depended on tax breaks provided by the government of the state of Tocantins where the company is located.[2]

Fabral produces the Santana Jalapao and Santana Anibal, both based on Santana PS-10 vehicles by Spain's Santana Motors, which themselves are based on the Land Rover Defender.[1] This was aimed at replacing the defunct Toyota Bandeirante off-roader, with the aim of receiving government orders.[2] Other vehicles planned include a Tata double-cab pickup truck and a South Korean bus. Their products are intended to be sold through Ssangyong dealerships, as these also belong to the Tricôs group.[1]
