The best I could find is some version of Bodoni.

Onyx at maybe 110% width would be really really close.

But it really does look like Bodoni Compressed.

You can also try http://www.identifont.com/

This one is also a close match but the ascendants are not as wide:

Like what? Easy to sneer, much harder to offer constructive help.

...it is a bit Retro

...but everyone has their opinion, and if Vectorman thinks its soooo bad, lets see some of his type design.! And I will gladly show some of mine.

otherwise, Bodoni seems the closest but not exactly.
Thank you all.
