The Can't Get You Out Of My Head star is putting her personalised Lexus CT200h up for auction in aid of children's charity the NSPCC.
Minogue said: "I am delighted to be donating my Lexus CT200h to the NSPCC for their City of London Christmas dinner, with all the proceeds going to their Helpline. I have been driving it throughout 2011 and I hope that the generous bidder gets as much enjoyment out of it as I have!"
The 43-year-old singer's black compact car will be sold to the highest bidder at the NSPCC City of London Christmas dinner at the Savoy Hotel, London on Thursday.
The event will include a champagne reception, three-course dinner and entertainment from Armstrong and Miller star Alexander Armstrong.
The annual City of London Christmas dinner has raised more than £3 million for the NSPCC in the last 16 years.
All the money raised will go towards the NSPCC Helpline, a telephone and online service which provides advice, guidance and support for adults who are concerned about the welfare of a child or young person.
Paul Marshall, general manager of marketing and strategy at Lexus said: "I am delighted that Kylie Minogue has agreed to donate her very own Lexus CT200h and hope that it helps to raise a significant sum of money for the NSPCC on the night."
