When released in 2008, one of the XF's best feature was its new-age luxury interior. It really made the driver feel as if he or she was sitting in something really special and really expensive: the shifter came as a knob that raised out of the center console, and the heating and cooling vents flipped around when you turned on the climate controls. All of that gets carried into the XF-R. The only differences are a standard suede ceiling, a newly upholstered dash, cool stitching and extra bolstering on the seats, and "R" logos strewn about to remind you that you just dropped some $30,000 extra on this car. All in all, the XF-R sports one of the best put together—and most fun—interiors in its class.
