It had a small 12-HP engine. In 1913 the company was bought by Newton &  Bennett of Manchester.
They offered this car car under the name NB. The next owner was John Newton who bought the factory in 1914 and continued as JOHN NEWTON FABRICCA DI AUTOMOBILI still using the 12-HP engine. Its production  ceased in 1915.
