I have a specific question regarding "SEF" URLs for product pages in webshops

I have a specific question regarding "SEF" URLs for product pages in webshops.

Say i have a webshop with a product category, with this URL:

www.???.com/superheroes/

I have a product with this alias:
optimus-prime

The product page URL is:
www.???.com/superheroes/optimus-prime

Now i want to prepend the product system ID to the product alias, so that the URL becomes:
www.???.com/superheroes/99-optimus-prime

(99 is the system ID of the product)

My question is this:

In regards to SEO, specifically Google SERP rankings, does it make any notable difference when using one product URL over the other?

www.???.com/superheroes/optimus-prime
vs
www.???.com/superheroes/99-optimus-prime

The reason I´m interested in this question is because, as a programmer, i prefer using this product URL:
www.???.com/superheroes/99-optimus-prime

because it makes system alias generation 100% fail safe for CMS routing purposes.
