Episode one, at 2:48 there's a short bit of Hell March from the Red Alert soundtrack, by Frank Klepacki, and at 20:05 (or so) it's Dead Kennedys - California ?ber Alles (obviously.)
Episode three, at 44:40 is Vangelis - End Titles (from the Blade Runner soundtrack.)

Ep. 1, starts at 38:45, where James is driving Fiat 124 up the Lingotto factory ramps. If anyone can find it, I'll be super grateful!

Can anyone please help me in identifying the two songs used near the end when James identifies "The people's car for the 21st century" (won't say what it is to prevent spoilers ;) )

1) at 52:12 to 53:44, where the car is being assembled in the factory, and James is building it up
2) at 53:45 to 54:15, where the car is revealed and justified

If you know what either song is, can you please respond with "song 1) is ....." or "song 2) is ...."

Cheers ;)

Song 1 is "God moving over the face of the waters" by Moby

I wanted to know the electronic music that is playing when he is driving the Countach, however, I notice that the episodes taken from the UK have the Miami Vice theme. The one I watched from BBC America had a different 80's sounding electronic tune. Anybody happen to see this version & know what it is? There was always too much talking or noise to Shazam it.

I need help in identifying the song in episode 2 at about 24:30 at the portion where James was shooting at the cars. The song does not sound like an English song to me, which make it quite difficult to figure out anything.

Maybe we'll find it this way: do you guys understand the words sung at the 'end' of this song? Because I, for the life of me, can't. It might be helpful.

I think I can make out the word "wildest". Sounds like it could be Huey Lewis and the News.

Can anyone please help me?
