The font is called Corporate A. I tried to find it a while back, but couldn't without spending a minimum of $35. I thought that was a little steep for 1 font. So I gave up looking.

Resurrecting an old post here.

I am looking for the emblem font. My thinking is to create decals for the shift knob.
I want to make "55" decals so the shift knob cap does not look too bland.

How about a decal of the AMG-Affalterbach crest/shield?

It's for sure a bit of an expense to design a font, and naturally most that do want to recover their costs, or even (!) make a profit.

Yeah it was a Benz internal font but now it can be 'licensed', hence the cost
