The Fiat 500C has been given a makeover by fashion brand Diesel.

The new 500C byDiesel, the latest in a long line of 500 special editions, is based on the 500C Lounge specification and is on sale now.

The byDiesel is available in Crossover Black and Diesel Green and a new Midnight Indigo Blue colour, reminiscent of stone-washed denim jeans. There’s the option of black, ivory and red soft-top colours.

It comes with a choice of 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre petrol and 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel engines.
