Chrysler has announced plans to offer a special edition Ypsilon in the United Kingdom.

Dubbed the Black & Red, the model unsurprisingly features a black and red exterior with tinted windows, fog lights and 16-inch alloy wheels.

Interior changes are limited, but include black / red seats, air conditioning and Blue&Me Bluetooth connectivity.

Under the hood, three different engines are available. Petrol choices include a 0.9-liter TwinAir two-cylinder with 85 PS (63 kW / 84 hp) and 145 Nm (107 lb-ft) of torque as well as a 1.2-liter four-cylinder with 69 PS (51 kW / 68 hp) and 102 Nm (75 lb-ft) of torque. The sole diesel engine is a 1.3-liter MultiJet which produces 95 PS (70 kW / 94 hp) and 200 Nm (148 lb-ft) of torque.

The Ypsilon Black & Red will be launched later this month and pricing starts at £12,750 (OTR).

An exciting new special edition version of Chrysler's first supermini, Ypsilon, has just been announced for sale in the UK this month (February).

Called Black&Red, this latest edition is designed to attract new and different customers to the model range and also to the Chrysler brand, which has just been relaunched in the UK.

Appealing to a broader audience, new Black&Red not only looks stunning, but is packed with new features that focus on style, technology and value for money.

"We're delighted to be launching this new addition to the popular Ypsilon line-up," says Nigel Land, brand director, Jeep Chrysler UK. "With additional equipment worth more than £3000 packed into a car that starts from just £12,750, we believe Black&Red will become a valuable member of the Ypsilon family."

Available with a choice of three engines - 0.9-litre TwinAir and 1.2-litre petrol, and 1.3-litre MultiJet diesel - new Black&Red receives a raft of standard interior features including black and red fabric seat upholstery, dashboard and door linings, air conditioning, Blue&Me Bluetooth, and a 360-degree hi-fi system.

Outside, the car gets black and red bi-colour paint, 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, fog lamps, black glass and body-coloured side skirts, all as standard.

And to make the new car even more desirable, Chrysler is offering a zero deposit, £199 per month finance deal on the 1.2-litre version (£219 0.9-litre TwinAir, £239 1.3-litre).

On the road pricing for new Ypsilon Black&Red is as follows:

1.2 Petrol - £12,750
0.9 TwinAir - £13,950
1.3 MultiJet - £14,950
