I was going to say twin tanks, but I guess some American stuff had those.
May's heads?
I'll give you a clue - seeing as you mentioned American.
This is somewhat tenuous but, my LHD Chevy is similar - though not identical - in this. As are the majority of modern day LHD cars.
 
Whilst out cycling today I saw a white Honda NSX. The latest style. It was on a 16 plate but apparently they weren’t sold in Europe until 2017. It was immaculate.
 
Do tell.......
Smart and Saab both configured their ignition locks as transmission - not steering - locks and located them centrally between the front seats.
The Chevy being LHD also has its key centrally positioned (ie, away from any door) and has in common with the smart no accessory position behind the run position. The Chevy's is at the other end (insert key and turn counter clockwise), the smart's absent altogether. Strangely, looking at the Saab pic - it seems to be the same as the smart.

Aah, I hadn't read your post correctly; I thought you were referring to Jag/Daimler.
I remember that on the Saab 900 Mrs S's uncle had; you had to select reverse to withdraw the key.

There’s a clip of film floating about on YouTube with Ayrton Senna driving a white NSX.

The smart was the same. More than one forgot to stick the key in and release reverse before towing behind a motorhome. An expensive way to find out that engines don't take kindly to being spun backwards at 20-30,000 rpm.
 
Seen a couple of interesting cars on our Tour de Scotland. Ultima GTR today and an old Alpina. Most people were taking photos of that fancy building behind the Alpina (in Edinburgh). I seemed to be the only one focussed on the car!IMG_0901.jpeg
