Hugleo, it is a comparison. The speaker is stating that he would last (durar) a shorter time than his competitor.

Here are some more examples using "even" with a verb.

The children wanted to have a big party for their birthday, but their mother wouldn't even let them have 3 friends over.

The car dealer said the car was was in mint condition, but it was in such bad condition that it wouldn't even start.

The woman wanted to buy a size 38 swim suit, but she couldn't even get it over her hips.

The woman wanted to try on her summer shorts, but she had gained so much weight over the winter that they wouldn't even close.Imagem I hope you can see the picture I drew.

Even adds emphasis to the statement.

Olá Pessoal,

Complementando:

Would not last even that long.(Não duraria nem deste tanto.)...este tanto que já durou.

Ex:He worked there for six months,but now in his new job he would not last even that long if he kept doing it.
Ex:Ele trabalhou lá seis meses,mas agora no novo emprego ele não duraria nem este tanto se continuasse fazendo isto.

;)
