Any car with a tall overdrive and a reasonable final drive ratio can do that.
the only thing required is enough latent torque to pressurize the hydraulics to down-shift when the accelerator is pressed. Most cars don't stay in top-gear if the driver presses the accelerator, anyway.
A 3 speed automatic can do that, if the third gear ratio is ~0.65:1 or so.
it is just a matter of how many gears, at what interval, are between lowest and highest gear ratios.
