It was not a perfect match. That combination gave a nose-heavy car that did not have the best handling on the track.
I cant remember the weight of the S85 engine, but I think it's a bit heavier than the V8 M5 engine.....
Actually the S85's weight is only marginally heavier.
/EDIT/ Only a couple pounds (1kg) heavier.
