1925 Newton-Ceirano 150S 14HP Tourer
Offered by Bonhams | Paris, France | February 4, 2016
The Newton-Ceirano was a short-lived British marque that was just an imported version of the Italian Ceirano, a car that was produced in Turin between 1919 and 1931 by Giovanni and Ernesto Ceirano. Newton & Bennett sold the cars in England as the Newton-Ceirano, specifically, the 150S model.
The engine is a 1.5-liter straight-four. The 14HP rating is for tax reasons, as the 150 Normale model boasted 30 horsepower from this engine. The 150S (or as the catalog has this, the S150) was geared differently and was capable of 65 MPH.
This car has known history since 1949 and was involved in an accident at some point, but repaired by the current owner. It has traveled 400 miles since work was completed. Only a handful of examples from this marque are known, making this very rare. It should bring between $49,000-$60,000. Click here for more info and here for more from this sale.
