What kind of engines are these and are these some kind of >special engines? Concorde's max operating speed is 1450 mph, with a typical cruise speed of Mach 2.02. It's equipped with 4 Rolls Royce/SNECMA Olympus 593 Mk 610 Turbojets and are rated at 38,050 lbs of thrust each. I'm not 100% sure but I believe that the engines have variable inlets that enable the engines to perform well at any flight altitude as Concorde cruises at FL600. I hope I was able to help.
