Fiat 500 by Diesel - Click above for high-res image gallery

What better place to introduce a new set of duds than at a fashion show? Fiat chose the "Bread & Butter" youth fashion show in Berlin to debut a new color for its Fiat 500 by Diesel. The limited edition Diesel has been available in black and green up until now, with 6,000 of the planned 10,000 units already sold. Those still in the market for a 500 by Diesel can now choose to have their Cinquecento slathered in the newly available "Midnight Indigo" blue, which was specially chosen because it "recalls the denim used to make jeans," according to Fiat.

Now, a new body color usually isn't enough to warrant a whole post, even a sharp-looking dark denim blue. No, Fiat has more to offer in this update than just the cool new hue. Underhood they've stuffed their latest Euro 5 compliant 1.3-liter Multijet II engine. The second-generation turbodiesel features the company's Start&Stop system and is good for 95 horsepower.

The Indigo version also gets the same upgrades as its predecessors - 16" alloy wheels, a faux rear air intake, satin chrome trim, and yellow brake calipers on the 1.4-liter, 100 horsepower version. Inside you'll find a dark denim fabric with yellow stitching that features the signature Diesel fifth pocket, the famous Mohican head on the shift knob and more satin chrome highlights. The full press release can be found after the jump and there's a pair of big images available in the gallery below.
