Resident Evil: Real Life Raccoon City Police Car Is Scary Accurate
Recently, a Resident Evil fan spotted a Raccoon city police car parked at Best Buy in Arizona. The authentic-looking vehicle even had a minigun hidden away for safekeeping. The Raccoon police department has a fascinating history in Resident Evil legends. It is believed that the higher-ups took bribes to Umbrella to ignore their nefarious activities. R.P.D. Played a significant role in the T-Virus contamination that decimated Raccoon City’s drinking water supply.
Raccoon City’s best rest in Resident Evil in many other ways. The franchise’s most beloved playable character is Leon S. Kennedy, a rookie cop. R.P.D.’s Special Tactics and Rescue Service (or S.T.A.R.S.) often takes center stage, with members like Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine as the lead characters in the original Resident Evil episode. At the same time, many fans enjoy cosplaying as the iconic R.P.D. One fan took heroes and others a step further by creating RE.
Redditor posted photos of the real-life Resident Evil-inspired Raccoon city police cruiser that he found outside of a Best Buy. George responded to Reddit users who claimed they had seen similar cars. He confirmed that the police car is available on the streets of Arizona. The S.T.A.R.S. is emblazoned on the specially-designed black and white cruiser. The S.T.A.R.S. name is displayed on the side. R.P.D. Logos are located over the rear tires. The trunk also contains a fake minigun and two airsoft pistols, as well as a pair of revolvers. An airsoft shotgun is also included, mounted on drunken people. See the photos below of the R.P.D. Cruiser.
Reddit user suggested that the “OUT OF STOCK” cover for sirens might have been required by local or state law to keep the car street legal. This suggests that the owner had to go through many hoops to get his R.P.D. Cruiser road-ready. However, such efforts appear to have been worthwhile.
Resident Evil continues its success after the brand’s revival with the 2017 launch of Resident Evil7. Remakes for RE2 and 3 followed the highly-acclaimed entry. The latest installment of the franchise, Resident Evil village, is a direct sequel. It stars series newcomer Ethan Winters.
