Ugo Monye, Tommy Bowe and Jamie Roberts grabbed a brace of tries apiece, with Tom Croft, Brian O'Driscoll, James Hook and Stephen Ferris also on the scoresheet in South Africa's largest city.
Forwards and backs alike combined to keep the ball alive at every opportunity as the Lions made light of the limited time they have so far spent in each other's company.
While the winning margin was thoroughly comprehensive, it in no way flattered the tourists who dominated in all areas of play including the set piece.
Having left it late to win their opening tour match last Saturday, the Lions ensured the result was never in doubt this time around.
The match was effectively over inside 25 minutes as four tries took the Lions into a commanding 25-3 lead.
The Lions opened the scoring with just five minutes on the clock thanks to a cleverly-worked try from Roberts.
One of three players to have also started the mid-week win in Phokeng, Roberts picked an inside line off centre partner O'Driscoll after the Leinster star had turned a straight two-on-two into the first real scoring opportunity of the night.
With Leicester's Croft claiming lineout ball at the tail, the Lions were soon over the gainline courtesy of second rows Alun-Wyn Jones and Nathan Hines.
Mike Phillips and Stephen Jones spread the ball wide and O'Driscoll produced a trade mark step to take two defenders out of the game and open a try-scoring gap for Roberts.
Try number two followed just three minutes later through match skipper O'Driscoll as provider turned try scorer on the High Veld.
Ireland's Grand Slam winning captain stepped inside the final defender to supply an assured finish after Bowe had come in off his wing deep in opposition territory.
Two superb touches from the boot of Stephen Jones created the initial platform with the latter forcing Michael Killian to scramble the ball into touch just a metre from the Golden Lions line.
Having played his part in the score itself, the Welsh fly-half added his second conversion to make it 14-0 before kicking his first penalty of the night with 19 minutes played.
Monye was then next on the try sheet two minutes later after he rounded off another stunning Lions attack.
Lee Mears kept the ball alive instead of taking contact having looped round the back of a lineout in his own half, allowing Roberts to cross the gainline once more.
Roberts followed Mears in finding a team-mate rather than accepting a tackle, with Bowe on the Welshman's shoulder 40 metres from the Golden Lions line.
With one man to beat, Bowe unselfishly floated a lengthy pass out to his fellow wing Monye who out sprinted the cover to dive over in the left-hand corner.
The difficult angle of the conversion resulted in Jones' missing the target for the first time but the Lions had established a 22-point advantage with just 25 minutes played.
That lead soon stretched to 29 a minute before the half-hour mark as Croft showed his blistering pace to join Monye in claiming a try on debut for Britain and Ireland's elite.
The Golden Lions hit back with a score of their own prior to half time as replacement full back Mike Frolick sprinted clear with 37 minutes gone but it made only the slightest dent in a commanding opening half from the Lions.
Former Springbok fly-half Andre Pretorious slotted a difficult conversion from wide on the right to reduce the deficit but, fittingly, it was the British and Irish variety of the Lions who claimed the final score before the interval.
With the clock having reached 40 minutes and no time left for a kick to touch, O'Driscoll decided his side would run the ball from just 15 metres shy of the try line rather than take a simple three points. It was a decision that paid dividends as Roberts powered over for his second try of the half.
With Stephen Jones completing the seven-point score the Lions took a 39-10 lead into the break.
Bowe added a further two scores in the early and middle part of the second period; the first after the Lions had used Roberts as a decoy to break the first line of defence before Stephen Jones provided the killer touch with a deft flick pass. The second arrived through an interception on halfway, with Jones successful with both conversions - one from the right-hand touchline and the other from directly underneath the uprights.
Bowe was then involved in the Lions' eighth score as he took possession and transferred it in the same movement to give Monye his second try of the game.
Monye left two covering defenders for dead as he sliced through the middle of the Golden Lions defence to increase the lead to 58-10 with 12 minutes remaining.
Replacement fly-half Hook kicked the conversion before adding an intercept try and another two points to put even more shine on an accomplished performance from the 2009 Lions against a Super 14 side containing the majority of their first-choice XV.
With the hooter then having sounded at the end of the 80 minutes but the ball being kept alive by the Golden Lions, there was still time for Ferris to race clear for a 50-metre break away score after Gethin Jenkins had driven the opposition back in the tackle.
Ferris showed great speed for a blindside flanker, with Pretorious unable to catch the Ulsterman in what was the last play of the match.
The Lions are next in action this Saturday when they face their second successive Super 14 opponents in the form of the Cheetahs.
With the first Test against the Springboks following just a fortnight later, McGeechan and his fellow coaches will be hoping for another polished performance in Bloemfontein (kick off 6.10pm UK time).
