Does anyone know what this weird 747 is?

Hi IFC 👋. I was recently browsing Flightradar24 when I found this 747 SP with 5 engines

Do you guys know what it is?

Feel free to continue here.

To answer your question, looks to be an engine testbed for Pratt & Whitney judging by the position of the 5th engine.
