Hi, maybe someone know the car used by Hitler in this pic, taken in 1923?

Nemmexe,
I think that the half-tracked vehicle in the lower picture is a member of the Citroën-Kegresse family. These vehicles were used in the 1920s and '30s to mount expeditions across the Sahara and, I believe, the Gobi deserts; the French Army made much use of heavier versions of them as wartime gun tractors.
Several models existed; I'm not sure which particular model is captured in your image.
I hope this helps.

Hi Rob,

Hi Dirk
your picture above does not depict a Nashorn.
It is a self-propelled 7,5 cm Pak on a Pz II chassis.
The designation is
7,5 cm Pak 40/2 auf Fgst PzKpfw II (Sf) (SdKfz 131) Marder II
If you need other pictures, I can post some.

Regards
Armin

Hi Kerry, Max.
Maybe FN - here is somewhat similar. but am not sure.
(More research needed).
Hi uncle, Kerry.
I'm not sure either, but under close scrutiny I don't think so. The FN has front hinged doors for one difference. Here is a photo of an FN 63 C and a comparison.

Hi Dirk,

pic 2: that could be an Opel "Blitz" bus like on the pic.
pic 3: that could be a field kitchen Hf. 13 like on the pic, but without the chimney.

Best regards

Bert

HI Max and Uncle,
Thank you for the suggestions and help, I will continue to look for the vehicle, but, for now, it remains a mystery. At least I now know which avenues do not need to be followed.
All the best,
Kerry.

Nemmexe,
I'm afraid that I'm unable to help with the identification of the vehicles in the first image; I've tried hard but I can't make out any details which might give me a clue.

Hey dear Rob,

Many thanks. I'll try to find a better quality photo, or a more clear version of photo. I'm not good with editing photos, but I'll do my best.

Hi Alif,
I located another version of this photo which provides additional detail on the car:
screenshot-www.alamy.com-2021.10.10-05_11_06.png
The V-shaped radiator, right hand drive and overall body style are typical of German cars of the early 20's, but I've so far not come up with a match, though I don't believe it is a Mercedes Benz. Maybe someone else can make a positive ID using this additional pic.

Here I've put together a crude composite that may be of some use:
