Handbrake

Not sure if this has been brought up before & while it is not really a moan, as such, more an observation. Why did someone think it was a good idea to put the handbrake in the next county (read state for the US guys) in relation to where the driver sits. It just does not seem to make any sense!
Any theories?

I believe with the layout of the console, it was to make sure it wasn't in the way while shifting. ie-allowing the driver to rest their arm on the console while shifting.

Yeh I kinda get what you mean, but most manufacturers, just put it in the centre & all you would have to do without, is two cup holders, which I'm sure they could find another place for. Just seems odd, awesome car though, love it!
