    What could it be?

    Not a completely unknown occurrence on those West Coast beaches that can be driven on.



    Hamilton's Gap Awhitu. Must have been driven there, the road access is half a kilometre away.
    Interesting that the brake disc/rotor has no rust on it. Any guesses as to what it was?
    I've seen similar on Ninety Mile Beach.

    I'm impressed by your instant diagnosis with so little information. Yes, I knew it was upside down, and wondered what if anything was underneath - i.e. body or mechanical bits. A couple of West Coast high tides would probably be enough to turn a vehicle into scrap.

    The black sand is Ilmenite (= Iron Titanium Oxide) - Titanium is noted for its anti-corrosion qualities, does that mean that these cars wouldn't rust as quickly as on the other coasts. Any metallurgists out there?
