Nothing sets off a high-end, luxury interior quite like rear-seat picnic tables. You know the ones I’m talking about. They’re the fold-down tables mounted to the backs of front seats in cars you’d rather be chauffeured in than drive.

In this age of laptops, digital notebooks and tablets, they make working on the go simple and easy. (Skeptical? Check out Brabus’ Mercedes-Benz S-Class iBusiness)
