Nissan just announced pricing for its 2014 GT-R and the Murano CrossCabriolet all-wheel drive.

The GT-R climbs in price by $2,770 and gets mild improvements for the 2014 model year. Nissan says the car now has improved torque response in its mid rpm range as well as better acceleration above 6,000 rpm. Each engine also comes from the factory with a plaque that shows the engine builder’s name.

Customers will aso be able to choose a new premium interior package with hand-stitched leather. The Black Edition model starts from $109,300 before delivery – an even heftier $2,980 price hike – and comes with a new steering wheel for 2014.

At high speeds, the car is also supposed to handle better thanks to a lower center of gravity.

Nissan also announced pricing for the Murano CrossCabriolet which now starts at $41,995. Don’t be surprised if you’re unfamiliar with the car. More of a crude car joke than anything you would likely consider purchasing, the Murano CrossCabriolet is exactly what it sounds like: a convertible crossover.

Taking the strangest of two worlds and mushing them together like a toddler with Play-Doh, Nissan soldiers into its fourth model year with the 2014 vehicle. Little coverage is often devoted to the quirky vehicle that in one case was at the center of controversy when a 70-year-old man with dementia bought one from a dealer for a ludicrous $62,130. The vehicle was later returned.

Regardless of its humorously uneventful past, Nissan seems to be pondering the legitimacy of selling such a “unique, all-season perspective on driving.” The 2014 model year’s starting price reflects a $2,545 discount over the previous year.

Both vehicles are available in dealerships now.

    So, they raised the price of the GT-R in order to drop the price on the cabriolet? Seems like a stupid move to me. Also, am I the only one that thinks it's ludacris for a car to raise in cost by 30k in 5 years? 2009 model was 69k...

    The old man that bought the GT-R.... Demented?.... I guess you can diagnose me with dementia as well. The old guy just wanted to go out in style!
