It was used typically on much older vehicles (1920's and 30's) using a front straight axle with a single multi-leaf spring. The wishbone would hold the front axle in alignment while allowing the axle to move up and down for suspension

How many cars have double wishbone suspension systems?

usually racing car and sports car will use this form of suspension. All F1 cars have double wishbone both front and rear.

Mazda miata used to have it on both front and rear. but the latest generation switched to multilink suspention on rear for a little more comfort trading off handling. My understanding: if you want a car that feels sporty, you should get one with this type of suspention. BTW BMW3 has macpherson on front , and it still has very good handling.
