'''Gavril''' is a fictional American automaker, known to produce passenger cars, light commercial vehicles, and heavy trucks (under the Gavril Trucks division). Little is currently known about the history of Gavril. It is not known when it was founded, but currently the earliest known Gavril vehicle is the 1962 [[Gavril Bluebuck|Bluebuck]]. It is also known that Gavril's luxury subsidiary [[Burnside]]<ref>BeamNG Forums: [https://www.beamng.com/threads/gavril-grand-marshal.125/page-6#post-11824 Gavril Grand Marshal]</ref> was founded in 1953. While currently the latest known Gavril vehicle is the 2001 [[H-Series]], advertising for the brand can be found in several maps as well as a dealership in [[West Coast, USA]], implying that the company still exists to this day. It has a long-running performance trim called "RoadSport," of which versions for all Gavril vehicles except the H-Series and T-Series exist.
  
==History==
+
It is tied with [[Ibishu]] for the title of most vehicles currently in-game, with a total of seven.
Little is currently known about the corporate behaviour or history of Gavril.  It is even unknown if Gavril has a corporate colour, as red, white, and blue all appear to have been used to promote Gavril vehicles at various times. It is not known when Gavril was founded, but the earliest Gavril vehicle known to the community at the time of this writing would be the 1963 Bluebuck.  It is also known that Gavril's luxury subsidiary [[Burnside]] was producing passenger cars in 1953, but it is not known whether Burnside was under Gavril's control at that time.
 
 
 
It is known that Gavril once had a practice of beginning the names of all passenger cars with the letter B.  Note that we have the '''B'''arstow, the '''B'''luebuck, as well as the entire '''B'''urnside line.  It is also worth noting that a seventies full-size sedan by the name of '''B'''eaufort was planned at one time,<ref>BeamNG Forums: [https://www.beamng.com/threads/436/page-9#post-74231 1963 Gavril Bluebuck]</ref> but it is unknown if it has ever entered development or will even be released under the Gavril brand.<ref>BeamNG Forums: [https://www.beamng.com/threads/436/page-9#post-74265 1963 Gavril Bluebuck]</ref>
 
 
 
===''Rigs of Rods''===
 
Gavril was also a marque featured in ''Rigs of Rods'', in which the automaker began in the 2000s the practice of giving all their passenger cars European style alphanumerical names (MV4, MZ2, GV3, etc.)  The Gavril Bandit, an early-seventies muscle car, follows the aforementioned B-naming scheme. This practice appears to have fallen out of favour at some point before the release of the Grand Marshal. However, none of the Gavril models created for ''Rigs of Rods'' have been confirmed to officially appear in BeamNG.drive at any point, and it is unknown if they are a part of BeamNG canon.
