Have a look at a Citroen C8, (& Peugeot 806): the handbrake is between the driver and the door.
Right hand drive vehicles have right hand operated handbrake, and left hand drive vehicles left hand. They are real nightmare to drive.
Reason is that the handbrake linkage is levered from the side, so they're poor handbrakes in addition. I don't know why it can't go down the middle.
(Apologies, a little off-thread, but the pasenger certainly could not help here.)
