It might be a commercially available font, but it's definitely hand-kerned for the logos if it is - look at the overlap and the way all the letters fit together.

There's also no certainty even if it is a commercially available font that it's not been messed around with a lot. For example, I found a font named Isabelle Regular that very closely resembles the font used for badging current Renaults, but it would need extensive modifications to actually resemble the logos...

I had a quick go - look - the Es still need widening a little.

Typography isn't an easy gig, I'm afraid...
