Mein Großvater, Karl Prinz zu Bentheim und Steinfurt (1884-1951), war beteiligt an der technischen Entwicklung und Erprobung des so genannten »Ilsewagens«. Mein Vater schrieb in seinen Lebenserinnerungen (2005): "Da mein Vater technisch ein gewisses Gespür besaß, hatte er sich in diesen Hüttenbetrieb recht gut eingelebt. Ich erinnere mich, dass er zusammen mit anderen Ingenieuren einen Personenkraftwagen mit Dieselantrieb konzipiert und mit diesem den Oberharz unsicher gemacht hatte. Das muss um 1925 gewesen sein. Der Wagen ist unter der Bezeichnung »Ilsewagen« bekannt geworden. Er bestand im Wesentlichen aus einem Fahrgestell mit Motor. Auf dem Fahrgestell war eine Sitzvorrichtung montiert, die einer Apfelsinenkiste ähnlich war. Im Übrigen war mein Vater ledermäßig vermummt mit großer Autobrille und ledernen Stulpenhandschuhen und hohen Schnürstiefeln ausgerüstet. Sogar für das Gesicht gab es einen Schutz gegen extreme Kälte. Eine Windschutzscheibe war bei diesem Automuster Luxus. Im übrigen bin ich heute noch im Besitz dieser Maske und ich mag sie nicht anlegen, weil es entweder nicht kalt genug ist oder weil man mit diesem Ding recht furchterregend ausschaute. Was aus diesem Auto später geworden ist, weiß ich nicht mehr. Vermutlich wurden die Entwicklungsarbeiten wegen der einsetzenden Weltwirtschaftskrise um 1927 und 1929 eingestellt. Vielleicht hatte man das Patent auch verkauft."
