That's suitably vague and minimalist, why not at least detail those involved and behind the project?

Per Rogers tweet on his site:
"The amazing McLaren Senna: overseeing the new ELVA design we have Steve Nichols; a key part of the McL+Senna success."
Though the reviews of the McLaren Senna styling have not been favorable....

There is an update posted 25 March.

Bio of Steve Nichols, an American.
This short bit taken from the OCTANE article, if I may….

Nichols left McLaren at the end of 2000 and became technical director at Jaguar
before stepping away from Formula 1 altogether.
His latest venture is a project to relaunch the Elva name. ‘I remember seeing Elva Couriers when I was a kid.'
We’re building up a prototype in the spirit of the McLaren-Elva M1A. It’s got a modern Chevrolet LS3 engine and the
bodywork has been modified to give it more of an aggressive stance. It’s a trackday car that can be road-legal.
It’s probably a little over the top for the latter, but it’ll be good for people who want a little adrenaline rush.’
