Exclamation jump start went wrong

One of my customers, drives a an early 90's 560 slc w/ the 117 engine. anyway he left the lights on and it discharged his battery, so he proceeded with jumping the battery and doing a series with another battery. the problem was he did not notice that he did it REVERSING THE POLARITY. now the car started after they switched it correctly. but it now runs on high idle it runs on 2000+ RPM was this possibly the effect of accidentaly reversing the polarity? any ideas tnx
