The quality of the picture is amazingly poor, but it looks like one is just painted in BA livery and the other Air France livery.

Either way, this might interest you: http://www.concordesst.com/concordeb.html

Or as captioned by some disrespectful punk of a Flight staffer, with a nod to Cole Porter... but not, I think, inaccurately at this point.

There was some kind of Concorde derivative called the Concorde-A or Concorde-B. It had a re-designed leading edge and with slots for use at certain speeds, and a modified Olympus turbojet with a scaled up compressor -- no afterburner needed.

The design claimed a 5,000 nm range. I have a feeling it did not achieve those figures, but for one reason or another it was cancelled.

The aircraft in question is described in the link I posted.
