Minogue Sisters' Ex-SLK Up for Grabs

It’s not everyday that you get the chance to own a car that once belonged to both Danii and Kylie Minogue, two of the most important Australian celebrities. Only imagine what would that back seat say if it could speak... The car in question is a black 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK230, but does the car model really matter?

According to Bonhams, who is hosting the auction, the vehicle was bought new by Dannii Minogue, and subsequently passed onto her sister, Kylie. The car is to be sold as part of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed sale on July 2, 2010, with part of the proceeds to be donated to charity.

In fact, the two beautiful Australian sisters have been the car's only two owners. Currently in perfect condition, or so the seller says, the SLK230 has covered just 19,000 miles. The pre-sale estimate was set between £8,000 – £12,000.

"We are delighted to have been appointed by the Minogue family to offer the Mercedes-Benz. It has all the right ingredients - good colour, low mileage and a fantastic provenance. Kylie and Dannii have a tremendous and far-reaching fan base and I can see it appealing to many people who want the same experience that they both shared," head of Bonhams Motoring Department, James Knight, said in a release.

Kylie, recently declared by researchers to be 'the most powerful celebrity in Britain', is on her way to release her eleventh studio album, Aphrodite, in July. Dannii, on the other hand, is a judge on popular TV shows such as The X Factor and Australia's Got Talent.
