Calculate the time that it takes to fall 58 m. It will not depend upon the car's velocity, just the cliff height.

Divide 126 m by the time it takes to fall to the base of the cliff.

That wll be the car's velocity when it leaves the cliff. That velocity remains the horizontal component of V as it falls.
