Off the back of cel's question on 458 delivery; does anyone know how many of these Australia will be receiving and with a 2 year waiting list if an order was placed today how many people would be ahead of you?

I suppose there will always be the possibility that some of the earlier orders will appear on the second hand market but I'm guessing at a premium for the privilege of ownership and to skip the new car purchase queue.

Personally, I'm not in the market for one of these (at this stage), this is more a question of interest.

Waiting lists are held by dealers, all of whom have a different allocation.  So the number of people in front of you if you order today varies from state to state. The 2 year wait is real though.

congrats indeed, shame about the wait though.. so would the first 458's be on the road here from June/July?

Thanks guys, I agree the wait is too bloody long!!! The first lot of 458's arrive here in June/July, there are only about 36 examples arriving this year with the rest following from 2011 onwards. For my daily drive, I alternate between a 2008 E92 BMW 323i with the M sports package and a Toyota Hilux. The 458 will be our first proper supercar.
