The Newton-Bennett was a car advertised and sold by a Manchester, England, based company between 1911 and 1925, but made in Italy. John Bennett was a Manchester car dealer selling locally made Belsize cars and holding agencies for several French makes. This merged with a similar company, Bennett and Carlisle, to become Newton-Bennett. As well as selling cars, they manufactured vehicle parts, and R.O. Harper was employed as works manager.In 1907 they became agents for the Italian SCAT and Harper was sent to Turin to help develop a car specifically to be sold by Newton-Bennett, but this never got beyond a prototype. Instead, they purchased a complete factory, also in Turin, that had made the VALT car. With Harper installed at the new factory, he designed a car which would be badged as a Newt

In 1914, the name changed to Newton but the outbreak of World War I and a large increase in import duties seem to have stopped production. In 1915 the factory was sold to Diatto. A Newton car was advertised again post war as the Ten, this time with a smaller 1086 cc engine with twin overhead camshafts. Between 500 and 1000 cars are thought to have been made. At least five cars are thought to survive.
