Amazingly, it's been seven years since the Fiat 500 was relaunched. Variations of the car have followed (including sporty and larger versions), but the original hasn't had more than a regular colour update. Until now, that is.

An update to the basic Fiat 500 has just been unveiled, looking not unlike the old version. But that's probably intentional. Keep the looks, tweak the rest.

Those 'tweaks' include a redesigned instrument cluster built around a seven-inch TFT display, a new 900cc turbo TwinAir engine with 105 horsepower, able to hit 62mph in 10 seconds and have a top 117mph speed, whilst still doing 67 miles per gallon.

There's also what's described as a new 'Cult' trim, with additional kit like 16-inch alloys, gloss black roof, chrome or gloss black wing mirrors and more.

No news on price and arrival date. You probably need to contact Fiat or your local Fiat dealer for that. Of course, there are also plenty of vintage models for sale on eBay if you want authenticity.
