In Dota2 there is a hero (or multiple, I don't know exactly) that can out-range a turret. Is there a champion in League of Legends that can out-range a turret?

I'm looking for answers that don't include the Firecannon as that item was made to out-range turrets.

    Canon minions with baron buff can. But quite sure there is no champion that can do so. – SirDuckduck Dec 16 '15 at 9:52

All turrets have 1095 sight range and 775 attack range[1]

So the question is: are there any champions with an attack range higher then 775.

Each champion begins the game with a particular base autoattack range. This can vary from 125 to 200 for melee units and 400 to 650 for ranged units. The highest base autoattack range for champions is held by Caitlyn. At level 18, the highest autoattack range is 669 held by Tristana surpassing Caitlyn at level 16 with 650 autoattack range. This is because of Tristana's Draw a Bead.[2]

Sounds like there is no one with a base basic attack range higher then 775.
However:

Twitch's Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat increases his attack range to 850 from 550 for 7 seconds.[2]

So Twitch's ult should be able to out range an turret.

I have no tested this.
EDIT: gnarly 404 just tested this.

    Hmm, Im going to try that. I did already know you can hit both nexus turrets with Twitch's Rat-Ta-Tat-Tat. – Bl00dylicious Dec 16 '15 at 10:41

    Allright, seems Twitch can backdoor without using minions. His Ambush and the Youmoo's active make him drop turrets really fast. Yi and Jax might learn something from a smelly rat. – Bl00dylicious Dec 16 '15 at 11:27
  • I remember Tristana being able to do it, but that was years ago... might have nerfed her – Lyrion Dec 16 '15 at 14:46
  • Tristana can't do it, the only one that can is Twitch – Tim B Dec 17 '15 at 11:26
  • It does outrange it, but the duration wont be long enough to successfully kill a turret from full hp – Kim Minseo Jan 3 '16 at 6:45

In this patch no, the only one that used to do it was tristana but they nerfed it.

You can compare every range with tower range and you'll see that noone outrange towers.

bonus : Still, some adc like caitlyn or tristana have higher range that allows to hit baron nashor or drake from the other side of the pit using specific spots.

I don't believe there are champions, this patch, that can outrange a turret. When they came out with rapid-fire cannon, the picture they used for an example of it was Tristana, firing a shot at a turret from way out of its range. Although, I believe there are a few champions who come very close:

  • Jinx (when using fishbones, she can hit the turret from the very edge of the turret range)
  • Tristana
  • Twitch (according to the answer above)
  • Caitlyn, pretty high range, but I haven't tested how ranged she actually is, but she starts out with the highest base auto attack range in the game, surpassed by tristana later in-game.
  • I tested it with Twitch after I saw that answer and I could safely destroy turrets with his ultimate. – Bl00dylicious Dec 16 '15 at 14:50

Kindred with enough stacks can because they are infinite.

  • Not possible without RFC. – Yuu Jan 23 '19 at 4:33
  • The attack range boost caps at +250 range, which brings her total attack range to 750. This is just shy of a tower's range (775), so unfortunately Kindred cannot outrange turrets. – Mage Xy Jan 23 '19 at 16:52
