I would think that the rev limiter would have kicked in, unless the owner disabled it for some reason. Your experience may have colored the way it ran after that.
It's hard to say if any "damage" occurred, but if it did, the guy who owns it would know. Be honest and tell him.
....and a good selling point for factory Acura All-Season floor mats!
