Ironic transport du jour

According to the November Men's Vogue, the design chief at Bugatti Automobiles gets to work via train and a "modest brown 10-speed." His company produces $1.5 million supercars that produce 1,001 horsepower and accelerate with rice rocket quickness (0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds). Is that a change of pace or what? But it is also somehow appropriate, for the firm's founder Etorre Bugatti began his career as an apprentice at a bicycle manufacturer.
