A black 1999 Mercedes-Benz SLK230, which was bought new by Dannii Minogue, and subsequently passed onto her sister, Kylie, is to be sold by Bonhams as part of the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed sale on 2 July 2010, with part of the proceeds to be donated to charity.
The celebrated Australian sisters have been the car’s only two owners. It is in fabulous condition having covered just 19,000 miles from new. The pre-sale estimate is £8,000 – 12,000.
Kylie, recently declared by researchers to be ‘the most powerful celebrity in Britain’, releases her eleventh studio album, Aphrodite, in July. Dannii is a judge on hugely successful shows The X Factor and Australia’s Got Talent.
Head of Bonhams Motoring Department, James Knight, comments: “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.”
