COVID-19 Lockdown

2020 kicked of very strong at DCY, taking a record number of orders (in any 1 month) to source specific cars. Unfortunately the Coronavirus put the brakes on what was setting up to be a record year. As a company from the 90's, DCY are built of tough stuff! Riding out a couple of economy crashes, market price drops, vehicle availability, petrol/diesel trends they've experienced pretty much everything. Between George, Barrie & the team they have managed to guide DCY Europe through, whilst keeping them at the forefront of the Japanese Import Industry in the UK & Europe. Measures were put in place early to enable DCY to keep serving throughout the pandemic.


New website

After having one of the most visited, import car classified/informational websites for such a long time, it seems only fitting to revamp with a new site, using todays platform but yesterdays way of doing things! We hope you enjoy the new site.


Business takeover

In the name of progression DCY Europe climb the corporate ladder and go limited. No change to the daily runnings nor the managment team thats in place.


Record numbers

2015 & 2016 see the largest number of imports per anum imported to date. The turnover of vehicles in the hundreds. Impressive stuff for a small outfit.


Exit from Motorsport

DCYs R32 Drift now in it's 10th+ year of cepetition running now in the European Drift Chgampoionship.

Unfortunatly while racing at Brands Hatch it developed a bottom end rumble, this was to be the last time the car ran. 2014 become a double sad year as our first race car (DCY Drag) was sold, thankfully it contuined in motorsport, drifting under new ownership out in Spain.


New Bood

Until now George & Barrie had staff'd the Showroom at DCY Towers but as stock levels rasied so did the work load. To help maintain the high standards another staff member was required. James fit straight in at DCY as if he'd been born there.


The big move

The oppertunity couldn't be missed to move into a new unit, a brand new development on a delightful business park only 5 miles away. Welcome to DCY HQ, indoor & outdoor showroom. Very capable of holding 50+ cars.


Record numbers

The plan to concentrate on car sales during the recession was wise. DCY never experienced any drop in sales. Profit percentage was much lower than prevoius years but with an increase in vehicle sales overall business was greatly improved.


Battle down the hatrch's

The UK slowed with the recession, DCY stayed busy with sales, as a procaution the race calander for 2009 was ditched in favor of spending time sourcing the best Japanese Cars possible. Making sure every vehicle was disired and in demand.


Need for speed

The DCY stable gets bigger, new customers bringing race cars in for work and setup. Securing the Main Dealer status for Carbaonetic Motorsport parts. DCY 4 strong race team was out alongside several customer/tuner cars.
