Font from 1988 Mercedes Advert

Does this font ring any bells?
It's from a 1988 advert for Mercedes S Class.
Bernhard Fashion comes close, save for the rounded edges and the R and S letterforms.

Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks!

I don’t think it’s a font. The slightly different E’s make it look handmade.

Another similar typeface is House Neutraface Display Drafting Alt. The 'E's and 'M' are really close, though I agree yours looks like the hand lettered architect's/landscape architect's style I learned in school.

Have you tried Estilo?

It’s not a perfect match, but it got the prominent S and rounded curves.
