This image could possibly have been flopped. I guess an expert on these cars would know for sure?

Think that Hitler, will never appear in an official ceremony driving the staff car, with his SS chauffeur Kempka in the seat next.
Not seem very serious, truth ?

Greeting Hitler with the right or left hand should give this one away

Hitler's coat lapels are the definitive photo characteristic to show which is the right way. In the version where he appears to be in the driver's seat, the outer coat lapel is on the wrong side. It's right when he is sitting in the passenger seat.
