The misc3d package includes a function for 3d contour plots; that should do what you want.

There are some errors in the rendering when plotting multiple contours, due to limitations in rgl (the underlying package that does the rendering). The problem is that transparent surfaces need to be rendered in order from back to front, and rgl doesn't do that. But it still looks good.
