Of course, I have to recommend our book
Kleiber & Zeileis, Applied Econometrics with R, Springer.
You can grab the preface and intro chapters in the "Sample pages" on
Springer's page to get an impression.
There is also Rick Vinod's book
Vinod, Hands-On Intermediate Econometrics Using R, World Scientific.
And somewhat more specialized is Bernhard Pfaff's
Pfaff, Analysis of Integrated and Cointegrated Time Series with R,
You might find further useful information on the econometrics task view:
And finally there was also a JSS special volume on "Econometrics in R"
