The Cadillac Typ 53 was the first car to use the same control layout as modern automobiles- with gear lever and hand brake in the middle of the front two seats, a key started ignition, and three pedals for the clutch, brake and throttle in the modern order.
The car had a V8 engine with 77hp.
Unfortunaly the Cadillac wasn't very popular but it created the modern layout of an automobile that is still used today. The layout became popular when the Austin 7 copied the layout of the Typ 53.
